Essentia Health St. Mary’s Hospice held the 11th Annual ‘Celebration of Life’ in several churches across the Northland Sunday.

The event brings together families who have lost loved ones in the hospice program over the past year.

Family members brought along pictures and the names of those who have passed were read aloud during the services.

“It’s a way for us to remember the people that we served and it’s also a way for us to say thank you to the families for allowing us to serve them in that tender time at the end of life,” said Chaplain Ron Henely.

More than 700 people were honored in services held in Superior, Grand Rapids and Virginia.
