Hospice Official Birthday – Thursday 6 June

Look out for us out and around the area as we celebrate our official birthday. Come and say hello if you spot a member of the team! And, as part of our fortieth anniversary celebrations we are recreating the silent Prayer Vigil that was held at St Peter’s Church in Berkhamsted on the 6th June 1979. This vigil led to the founding of our Hospice. St Peter’s will be open this year from 4pm until 8pm providing a multi-faith, contemplative space to give thanks for our Hospice and to pray for our future. The Lady Chapel in St Albans Cathedral will also be open from 1pm-3pm.
