Candles of Remembrance
Please join us as we take some time on December 10th to pause and remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. This year, while we are saddened we are unable to be together in person, we are happy to announce that the Candles of Remembrance ceremony will take place in a virtual manor.
While traditionally community members would join us in person to light candles and enjoy poetry readings along with music, this year will look a bit different. We will be hosting our annual Candles of Remembrance event virtually this year through a pre-recorded ceremony video which will launch on Thursday, December 10th at 6:30pm on the event website The video will remain online for you to enjoy at your leisure.
We would like to invite you to submit photo’s of your loved ones, along with a sentiment, to be included in the Candles of Remembrance ceremony video. To submit your loved ones information and to RSVP please click on the RSVP button below. Please note: the Candles of Remembrance video will available to the general public once it has been launched.  Any submissions received come along with implied consent to allow Hospice Orillia to include the name(s), photos and sentiments submitted in the public video.
