On Saturday, August 25, Concordia Hospice of Washington will host a Memorial Butterfly Release at 2 p.m. at The Barn at Ike’s Place in Amity. This event is open for anyone who wants to honor and celebrate the memory of their loved ones. Both symbolically and biblically, butterflies are creatures with the ability to transcend the ordinary and take flight into the heavens! Children are welcome!
Participants are asked to reserve a live butterfly in advance for $10 each, and there will also be a limited number of butterflies available to purchase on-site the day of the event. All proceeds will benefit Concordia Hospice of Washington and our mission of caring for those we love facing a life-limiting illness or preparing to pass into God’s Glory.
The program will begin with a brief prayer service and dedication, followed by choral and musical performances. Participants will then release their butterflies into the sky as a representation of “letting go” their loved ones into the hearts and hands of God.

Many individuals and their families are touched each year by the physical, emotional and spiritual end-of-life care Concordia Hospice of Washington provides. We help patients make choices about their care and provide support for friends and families who are grieving.
We hope that you will join us for this beautiful and spiritually uplifting event on Saturday, August 25.
