What is St. George’s connection to the Dorothy Ley Hospice?
Some 35 years ago, a parishioner from St. George’s on-the-Hill died in hospital from cancer. Afterwards, the friends and family who had shared in her journey started a search for a more compassionate and dignified way for someone facing a life-limiting illness to spend their final days. The Dorothy Ley Hospice is the result of that search.
Ever since, the Hospice has been an integral part of St. George’s community outreach, with the parish providing not only financial support, but volunteers for the community program, the board and various fundraising events; a location for the day respite program before the residence was built; and, active participation in the capital campaign which resulted in the residence being opened in 2009.
