A nondenominational Winter’s Night service held at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church in recent years is moving to the chapel at the new T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center at 12477 Merit Drive.
“With the opening of our center, we are creating a new tradition which will continue for many years to come,” announced Jannetta Lingle, director of clinical services for Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
Faith Presbyterian Hospice will present the candlelight memorial service from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, to help those who are grieving this holiday season “honor loved ones who have gone before us,” according to a news release.
“The holidays can be a very difficult time for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one, and we want to let people know there is a community resource available and a safe place to recognize their grief during this holiday time,” said Valerie Sanchez, director of bereavement.
During the service, the first event scheduled in the center’s new chapel, participants will light candles and say aloud the names of their loved ones and may make ornaments marked with their loved ones’ names and dates of birth and death. The women’s a cappella choir Mosaic Song will perform.
The $43 million, 53,388-square-foot center is set to open during the first quarter of 2017 and serve 1,200 families annually at its 9.3-acre campus. Visit faithpreshospice.org/hospice-care-center for more information.
