November Observance Honors Members of the Community Impacted by Life-Limiting Illness
LEXINGTON, N.C. (Oct. 20, 2020) – Hospice of Davidson County invites the community to join local faith congregations in Hospice Sabbath Sunday, Nov. 15 to raise awareness about the importance of spiritual care for those facing life-limiting illness.
In observance of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, Hospice Sabbath is a time to remember those who have passed away while also recognizing the important role hospice plays in end-of-life care. Churches across Davidson County are being asked to participate by displaying a white rose in memory of all congregation members that have passed.
In addition, Hospice of Davidson County will further support faith congregations across the County by providing a short video, bulletin inserts and additional materials addressing chronic-disease management, end-of-life spiritual care while recognizing neighbors, co-workers, friends and loved ones impacted by chronic illness.
“We know many congregations aren’t currently meeting in person, so we’ve created many virtual offerings to help meaningfully recognize Hospice Sabbath in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month,” said Hannah West, director of community relations for Hospice of Davidson County. “This interfaith service provides an opportunity for reflection and remembrance of those loved ones as they journeyed through the last stages of illness.”
For more information about Hospice Sabbath or to request materials from Hospice of Davidson County, visit hospiceofdavidson.org or contact Charla Darr at (336) 475-5444 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Nov. 9.
