Zion Presbyterian Church in Charlottetown will be holding its annual Memorial Angel Service on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

Thirteen years ago, a group of interested members at Zion approached church officials about a special evening service they wanted to develop.

The program, the Memorial Angel Service, continues today.

Rev. Douglas Rollwage, the senior minister at Zion, says the service was originally planned as a one-time event, but its popularity has grown each year. 

He said the meaningful service of reflection and remembrance is an opportunity to step back from the busy holiday season to truly reflect on the lives of those near and dear to us who have departed.

Everyone is encouraged to attend the service and to participate by placing an angel on the tree to honor the memory of a departed loved one. 

Angels will be prepared and can be picked up just prior to the service on Dec. 8. 

The church is located at 135 Prince St. For more information or to place an angel on the tree, contact Dianne at the church office or at 902 566 5363 or visit zionpres.org.
