Angels Remembered

Angels Remembered

Bringing peace, joy, and remembrance.

The Christmas season can be a particularly difficult time of year for those in our community grieving a loss. Angels Remembered is a program that addresses grief and loss by providing an opportunity for the community to remember the special individuals who have touched their lives and since died. The Hospice sets up “Angels Remembered Trees” in various locations across the region and the community is invited to adorn the tree with an Angel in memory of someone who has died.

“Angels Remembered has become a significant way for many people in our community to recognize and acknowledge the importance of keeping memories alive” – Serena Lewis, Former Executive Director

A holiday tradition.

Angels Remembered has become an important part of the holiday season for many residents of Colchester East-Hants. Dozens of committed volunteers crochet hundreds of angels and are present at the tree locations where hundreds of angels are placed each year. This annual event was an idea sparked from our very own volunteers, Janice Little and Betty Riddell, to reach out and connect with those in the community grieving a loss during the holidays. The programs success is not only measured by the funds raised to support our programs and service, but also knowing that with every crocheted ornament placed on our trees there is a story of a loved one, an angel remembered, at Christmas.

“Many of the angels are hand crafted by volunteers, and the person making the angel provides a wonderful human connection for those who are grieving.” – Betty Riddell

"With no government funding, the hospice society relies heavily on fundraisers and donations... Harrison says this change has already allowed the team to put their focus back on developing programs and services."
