Norwalk Hospital will host its Annual Service of Remembrance for families of patients who died this past year at the hospital and the staff who supported them. The service is "an opportunity for people to recall their loved ones in community with others who have suffered loss,” according to Rev. Debra Slade, Director of Spiritual Care at Norwalk Hospital.
The memorial program will feature music by soloist Chaplain Stephen Pond, accompanied by Chaplain Carol Bauer, and harpist Chaplain Annie Hartigan, all of Norwalk Hospital. With this service, Rev. Debra Slade said, “We hope to provide support for those who grieve their loved ones, and recognition of the time they spent at our hospital.” Hospital chaplains will be available to offer support and care.
Spiritual Care involves helping people through life transitions with a supportive presence, and an awareness of the sacred. The Department of Spiritual Care includes chaplains of many faith traditions who minister in an interfaith context with all people.
The service will take place in the Perkin Auditorium at Norwalk Hospital on March 2, 2017 at 5:30 PM.
For more information and to RSVP if you are planning to attend, please call Mrs. Lashaun Brown of the Department of Spiritual Care at 203-852-2541.
