St Wilfrid’s Hospice is inviting people to go along and remember loved ones at their traditional annual remembrance event at Chichester Cathedral.
Starting at 6pm, with free entry on Sunday, December 9, this service of readings and traditional carols by the Cathedral Voluntary Choir involves lighting a candle in memory of a loved one.
It is a reflective, yet uplifting service providing an opportunity for comfort and quiet contemplation.
Speaking in December last year, Nikki Barrett a former patient’s daughter said: “Last Christmas my dad died at St Wilfrid’s, only 16 weeks after my mum had died there.
“Our sadness was overwhelming and much of that time was a blur. But St Wilfrid’s helped steady us. The nurses, the housekeeping team, and the catering staff – all of them were there providing care and support when most people are at home enjoying time with their own families.
“They cared for Dad – and for us – making sure that we could spend one last special Christmas together with him.”
