By Franciscan Health | | 11.27.23

The holidays can be an emotional time, especially if you have lost a loved one. That’s why Franciscan Health and Franciscan Hospice Bereavement are hosting their annual “Christmas Remembrance” at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 14.

This event is open to anyone who has lost a loved one. It will take place at Southport Presbyterian Church, 7525 McFarland Road, in Indianapolis.

Each family that attends the remembrance will receive a Christmas ornament from Bronner’s Christmas Store.

Registration for this free event is available by contacting Franciscan Health Bereavement Coordinator Karla Riggs-Norton at (317) 528-2636.

“This is a time to reflect on Christmases past with our loved ones and a time for honoring them,” Riggs-Norton said.

The event includes Christmas music performed by Southland Community Church soloist David Freeman and children, and grief support time with George Bailey and ventriloquist Kathy Sorensen. There will also be singing of traditional Christmas carols and a candle-lighting ceremony followed by fellowship and refreshments.

Participants may bring photos of their loved ones to be displayed on the Table of Honor in the front of the sanctuary.
