Earlier this summer more than 200 people joined St Catherine’s Hospice for the charity’s popular annual Memory Meadow remembrance service in Priory Park.
The special event, which was led by Rev Lisa Rainier, spiritual care lead at St Catherine’s gave people a chance to remember someone they love, through live music, poems and readings.
It is hoped that the service which took place next to the tranquil Memory Meadow near Priory Park’s lake also gave attendees the opportunity to meet others who have been through a similar experience.
Rev Lisa Rainier said: “I’d like to thank everyone who joined us at Memory Meadow. I hope those attending gained comfort from coming together with others in their community to remember someone.”
As well as providing end of life care and support to terminally ill people and their families, St Catherine’s provides counselling, bereavement and spiritual support to their families and friends across Mid Sussex and East Surrey.
Events like Memory Meadow, Tree Of Light, and groups in Crawley and Oxted are part of the care that the hospice offers people in the community to help them through difficult times.
