Join us for a special ceremony for Veterans honoring those who survived and
carry the burden of their dead comrade’s memory. No RSVP Required.
In Collaboration With: Samaritan, Opus Peace, Voorhees Township, and the Voorhees Town Center
Memorial Day honors those who died in military service. The Fallen Comrade Ceremony honors those who survived. Based on Native-American warrior welcoming-home rituals, the Fallen Comrade Ceremony restores hope for healing the soul injury often carried by Veterans and First Responders who serve in dangerous-duty assignments.
Safe sanctuary is provided for them to mourn the losses they have sustained, such as: comrades who died in battle, loss of physical/mental health, loss of the self they had prior to the trauma, assault that occurred within their own ranks, or an unfair administrative action taken against them.
Samaritan is an independent, not-for-profit, community-based provider of hospice care, palliative medicine, primary care and grief support services for people living in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer counties.
Opus Peace’s mission is to provide meaningful experiences through Soul Injury® educational programs. Founded in 2013, the Soul Injury® concept began when five VA hospice nurses cared for 10,000 dying Veterans and witnessed “warrior wisdom” emerge from the depths of consciousness, revealing a process for attaining personal peace.
