Prayer Vigil

Join us in prayer during our fortieth anniversary week 2nd-9th June

Light a candle for the Hospice 

Prayer Vigil at St Peter's Church

Thursday 6th June, 4 - 8pm

Sharing Precious Memories

As part of our fortieth anniversary celebrations we are recreating the silent Prayer Vigil that was held at St Peter’s Church in Berkhamsted on the 6th June 1979. This vigil led to the founding of your Hospice. 

St Peters will be open from 4pm until 8pm providing a multi-faith, contemplative space to give thanks for our Hospice and to pray for our future. The Lady Chapel in St Albans Cathedral will also be open from 1pm-3pm.

Please do join us!
