HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese and Highland invite community members to join them for a butterfly release. Butterflies will be released in memory of loved ones on May 23 at 6 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Breese and on May 30 at 6 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Highland. Guests are also invited to attend a short reception following the release.
The event at St. Joseph’s Breese will be located on the grass area near the main entrance, and the event at St. Joseph’s Highland will take place in the hospital’s Franciscan Healing Garden.
“The butterfly represents the transformation of the spirit as our loved ones transition from this life,” said Ashley Dillingham, Outreach Representative for HSHS Hospice Southern Illinois. “We look forward to sharing in this special time with our community.”
Butterflies are $25 each, and there is no limit on the amount of butterflies you wish to purchase. All proceeds from the Memorial Butterfly Release benefit HSHS Hospice Southern Illinois.
If you are interested in reserving a butterfly or have any questions regarding the Memorial Butterfly Release, please contact Ashley Dillingham, Outreach Representative with HSHS Home Care & Hospice Southern Illinois, at 217-994-3397 or Ashley.Dillingham@hshs.org.
