Tree of Lights


The Council of Leagues of Mercy Medical Center invites the community to join in an annual Tree of Lights holiday celebration each year on the first Tuesday in December 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 takes place in front of the hospital, followed by refreshments served in the Main Lobby.

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 is displayed in the hospital's main lobby during the holiday season.

A special Mass is at 12:00 noon in the hospital chapel on the second Tuesday in January for all those remembered in the Tree of Lights.

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