Home for the Holidays – 2009 Hospice Festival of Trees

Ladies of Charity, Holy Ghost, Issue, Maryland (Archdiocese of Washington, D.C.), decorated a 7-1/2 foot Christmas tree for Charles County Hospice. Decorations were purchased by the ladies and the proceeds from the tree and wreath sale benefit Hospice. This is an annual give-back event for the Ladies of Charity to their community.

As we all know Hospice is prmarily a concept of care, not a specific place of care. Today, Hospice offers a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life threatening illness. Hospice of Charles County has been serving the terminally ill in our community since 1983.

Decorating a Hospice tree and wreath has been a tradition with the Holy Ghost ladies for the last eight years — tis the season to share with others. What better way to share than give time, talent and treasure to a group that gives their love and care all year round to those in need of rest and comfort?
