The holidays can be a difficult time for those who have lost a loved one — whether it was recently or years ago.

The Salem Health Foundation will host its third annual Longest Night of the Year, A Candlelight Vigil of Remembrance on Dec. 21 (Winter Solstice) from 7 to 8 p.m. at Salem Hospital in Building C, conference rooms A, B and C. The free indoor event features readings, music and a candle-lighting ceremony. All are welcome.

 “It’s important to come together to grieve as a community,” said Ken Morse, Salem Health spiritual care supervisor. “This event is designed to create a space where we can remember and honor those we’ve lost.”

The library at Salem Health Community Health Education Center has many resources to help with holiday depression and grief. Explore library resources, learn about bereavement support groups or call 503-814-2325 for more information.
