Candlelight Memorial Service

Join us on December 6, 2021, for the Candlelight Memorial Service. Each year, on December 6, we join together to remember the children angels among us. This year’s Candlelight Memorial Service will be shared virtually. We invite you to join us as we decorate the tree with ornaments decorated by the families. Please check our Facebook page on Monday, December 6 at 7 p.m. to watch the service.

Ornament Decorations

There are a few options to participate in this year's Virtual Candlelight Service.

  1. Decorate a New Ornament: Ornaments will be distributed at the Altru Hospital lobby. Stop by the guest services desk to pick up an ornament, decorate it and drop it back off for it to be displayed on this year's tree.
  2. Print and Email an Angel Ornament: If you are unable to pick up an ornament, you may download the printable PDF, color or decorate an angel and email a photo or scan back to Courtney Caron at, along with the ornament card including your contact details. Our team will print and include your ornament in the service.
  3. Use an Ornament from Last Year: If you submitted an ornament for the service last year and you wish to use the same angel ornament, you may reach out to Bev Jung in Pastoral Care at 701.780.5300.

Please submit your decorated ornaments by Thursday, December 2.

For questions, please contact Courtney Caron at or call 701.780.3642.
