News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool


St Joseph’s Hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ appeal is now under way and will run right up to this year’s ‘Light up a Life’ service and Christmas light switch-on at 4pm on Sunday 9 December.


The hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ service is a festive occasion with remembrance and celebration at its heart – dedications can be made to loved ones by sponsoring a light on the 25ft Christmas tree or by leaving a memory heart on a special ornamental tree.


Julie McAdam, senior fundraiser for the hospice, said: ‘“Light up a Life” is a wonderful way to think about our family and friends at Christmastime, whether they’re no longer with us or are just a long way away. If you or your family would like to dedicate a light to someone special on our Christmas tree, dedications can be made now by contacting our fundraising team or downloading a form from our website. We will also enter all dedications into our special “Light up a Life” dedication book as a permanent tribute.’


Dedications can be made now by downloading a form from www.jospice.org.uk. Forms are also available from St Joseph’s Hospice shops. For anybody unable to attend but wishing to make a donation, please text JOSP05 plus the amount to donate to 70070 (eg ‘JOSP05 £10’ to donate £10).
