Concordia Hospice of Washington Butterfly Release (2019)

On Saturday, August 31, 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. Children are welcome!

Participants are asked to reserve a live butterfly in advance (by July 2) 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 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.

Click here to register for the event, volunteer or find out more information. Or call 724-250-4500.

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 31.
