Milford Care Centre invites its supporters to a Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at Our Lady Help of Christians Church, Castletroy, on Sunday, May 12th, 2024, at 3 pm.
This service is dedicated to honouring the memory of those who have passed away, while under the care of Milford Care Centre and the group is warmly welcoming all members of the community, regardless of faith, to join them in commemorating their lives.

In times of loss, we grapple with a lot of emotions. Memories persist, while grief and sadness linger, shaping our lives with the weight of the past and the present.

The organiser of the event said, “We invite families to bring along a stone either from your home, or a place that holds a special significance to you and your loved one. We invite you to write your loved one’s name on it. During the service a representative from each family will have an opportunity to place the stone on the altar.

“Alternatively, you may wish to do this after the service finishes. These stones will be placed beneath the altar at Christmas and again at the foot of the Easter cross next year here at Milford. Subsequently, they will be relocated around our ‘Light up a Memory Tree’.”
