Representatives from the St. Tikhon's Community gathered at Wayne Memorial Hospital on Monday, December 9, 2013 to spread holiday cheer to the staff and patients of the hospital. They gathered alongside hospital administration, staff, and volunteers outside the main entrance for a lighting ceremony during which the attendees remembered in prayer those departed family and friends who were most dear to their hearts.
Following the lighting ceremony the gathering moved to the hospital cafe, where refreshments were generously provided by representatives from Wayne Memorial Hospital. Once all those participating had received their fill of delicious cookies and hot chocolate, the group moved throughout the hospital singing Christmas carols to the delight of everyone present.
The St. Tikhon's Community extends its gratitude to the staff of Wayne Memorial and to all those who work diligently each year to make this event possible.
