Tree of Life

About the tree

Since 1989 it has been our privilege to serve patients and their families within the local community. In the month of December we will remember all those we have cared for through our Tree of Life Ceremonies.

We are so sorry that we are unable to invite you to gather with us in December at either hospice for our Tree Lighting Ceremonies this year. Instead, we will record
and broadcast the Tree of Life Ceremonies, including the lighting of the Christmas trees at both hospices, which you will be able to view on our Website or Facebook on the
9th of December. So, we invite you to gather in your own homes with family and join us on the 9th December at 7.30pm to remember those that we have cared for and for all
those who were lost to Covid 19. 


CEREMONY: This gentle service of remembrance will be led by one of our hospice Chaplains who will be joined virtually by service participants from both religious and lay members within the community. During the service the lights of the Hospice Christmas Tree will be turned on to remember all those we have cared for both past and present and for all of those who were lost to Covid 19.

LIGHT SPONSORSHIP: The hospice Christmas tree is made up of hundreds of lights and these lights can be sponsored €6 per light, before and after the ceremony, in memory of a loved one or for somebody experiencing difficulty in their lives. A Tree of Life Card is also available with each light purchased. This card can be sent to a relative or friend telling them that they are remembered. Lights may also be purchased online on our virtual Christmas Tree

If you have any queries please contact St. Francis Hospice Raheny – Tel: 8327535 or St. Francis Hospice Blanchardstown Tel: 8294000.

We look forward to welcoming you on the night and thank you for your support of these very special occasions.
