A chance to honor loved ones and health care heroes during the Christmas season

Northeast Wisconsin – The Volunteer Partners for HSHS St. Vincent, St. Mary’s, St. Nicholas and St. Clare Memorial Hospitals invite their communities to participate in Love Lights, an annual Christmas fundraiser.

With Love Lights, people can honor a loved one or a health care hero by having the individual’s name placed next to a lit Christmas tree at the hospital of their choice. On Tuesday, Dec. 21 from 11 a.m. to noon, a blessing of these trees and all those being honored will take place virtually at all four hospital locations. The trees will remain on display throughout the Christmas season. 

Love Lights is a special way to honor loved ones who may be receiving care at the hospitals, or who have passed and are dearly missed. Participants can also use this opportunity to honor their favorite health care hero. This annual fundraiser is way to help the hospitals, which are part of a not-for-profit, Catholic-based health care system, to continue to provide health, healing and hope to all they serve.

Participants can make their purchase online, or with a check via mail by Dec. 17. All information for each hospital’s Love Lights event can be found at the following sites:
