Tree of Lights Celebration; Dec. 11
Rockville Centre, NY — The Mercy Medical Center Council of Leagues is hosting its Annual Tree of Lights Celebration at Mercy Medical Center on December 11, 2018 at 5pm. The evening begins in the hospital’s main lobby where guests will be greeted by carolers before proceeding outside for the blessing and lighting of the tree. After the tree lighting, all are invited to return to the hospital lobby for refreshments.
Guests can help support the event by naming a holiday decoration in memory of a loved one, in celebration of an event or in honor of a special person. The names of all honorees will be recorded in the Tree of Lights Commemorative Book of Honor, which will be on display in the hospital’s lobby throughout the holiday season. A special Mass for all those named in the book will be offered in the Mercy Chapel on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. Proceeds from this year’s Tree of Lights event will be dedicated to the renovation and expansion of Mercy Medical Center’s Mother/Baby Unit.
