In December, Samaritan Hosts Tree of Life Ceremonies Throughout the Region for Communities to Remember Loved Ones

Marlton, N.J. –The community is invited to a special annual tradition. Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice presents its Tree of Life ceremonies at five area locations. These moving ceremonies serve as an opportune place to gather family and friends to remember loved ones as we enter the holiday season. 

Each candlelight ceremony is open to the public and features inspirational readings and music provided by local musicians and choirs, followed by refreshments and fellowship.

Individuals may dedicate a light on the tree in memory of someone who has passed or in honor of someone special in their life. Proceeds from optional donations benefit the patients, families and programs of Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice.
