Community Invited to Tree of Lights Holiday Celebration on December 8th

pr_20091119_mmc_tree(November 19, 2009 - Rockville Centre, NY) - The Council of Leagues of Mercy Medical Center invites the community to join in the annual Tree of Lights holiday celebration on Tuesday, December 8th at 7:00 p.m.

The ceremony provides the opportunity to recall the need to grow stronger together in our search for peace, with the Tree of Lights representing a beacon of hope and unity in our fragmented world. The blessing and lighting of the tree will take place in front of the hospital, followed by refreshments served in the Main Lobby.

The proceeds from the Tree of Lights will be used to establish a full service beauty salon for hospital patients.

Lights can purchased for the tree in memory of a loved one, in celebration of a special event, or in honor of a special person, with remembrances recorded in a Tree of Lights book that will be displayed in the hospital's main lobby during the holiday season.

A special mass will be held at 12:00 noon in the hospital chapel on Tuesday, January 12 , 2010 for all those remembered in the Tree of Lights.

To purchasing a memorial light or for information about the Mass, please call the League Office at (516) 705-1833.
