Angels Remembered is a Colchester East Hants Hospice program tradition that has been taking place since the early 2000’s and has expanded from Truro to include Tatamagouche, Masstown and Elmsdale. It is a popular event in the community with people actively seeking it out yearly as a way to remember someone they love that has died.

Finding a way to remember and honour those who have died can help ease the pain of an otherwise difficult holiday season. This is the idea behind the Colchester East Hants Hospice Society’s Angels Remembered Trees. The purpose of the program is to offer a space for people to acknowledge the loss of an important person in their lives. Members of the community can chose an Angel, add a tag with their loved one’s name and/or a message and hang it on the tree.

Volunteers are present to provide information about the Hospice Society and to be a supportive listener as often people like to tell their stories of loss. This a bereavement program not a fundraiser, however some people feel strongly about donating so we continue to provide this opportunity.

We encourage everyone to come and visit our Angel’s Remembered Tree and hang an angel in memory of a loved one

Trees will be located at the following locations:

Dec. 4-21 – Truro Mall

Ded. 8-22 – Masstown Market

Dec. TBD – Hospice Centre, 89 Queen St. Truro

Dec. TBD – Elmsdale

Dec. TBD – Tatamagouche

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society NSCC work placement student, Cordelia Payne: Why is Hospice important to you?

"I chose to do my work placement with hospice because the care and support shown to families entering the grieving process has been a topic of interest of mine the past couple of years. I believe that death should not be a taboo subject.

It is something we all encounter in our lives and to be able to face it, cope with it, have the support of others within it, and to be able to make the choices best for us and honour the feelings of the deceased is a very empowering thing. I think it is one of the most beautiful things you can offer a person, to be able to support them in a time of such vulnerability and to let them know that they have the ability to make choices, even in a time where everything seems out of their control."
