Healing Events

Honoring those we’ve lost can often provide healing for those who grieve. Beyond Loss offers special events that can help facilitate the journey from pain and grief to healing.

Holiday Gathering of Remembrance event

In December, the Beyond Loss Grief Support Program hosts an annual Holiday Gathering of Remembrance event honoring those who have died. This event is an evening filled with stories, music and love, and includes a Wall of Memory honoring those who are no longer with us.

Light Up a Life

Hosted by the Adventist Health Glendale Foundation, the Light Up a Life event is held the first Thursday evening in December in the West Tower. The program includes music, a speaker, candle lighting, a tribute listing the names of those who have died during the year and those being honored, and the lighting of the West Tower tree. The event culminates with refreshments.
