Annual Memorial Service: March 29, 2020, Inter-Faith Chapel in Leisure World -- POSTPONED 
In this time of uncertainty and concern around the novel
coronavirus, we want to reassure you that Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice is doing all we can to ensure the best medical safety protocols for our families, staff and community.  With that in mind, we have decided through an abundance of caution to postpone the Annual Memorial Service scheduled for March 29 at the Inter-Faith Chapel in Leisure World.   We are sorry for this change of plans, and we hope you understand our efforts to be thoughtful and judicious in our approach to this critical time in our community.

We will contact you in the future about another date for the service when the situation changes and we feel more assured about hosting a large gathering in the community.  Please know that we continue to remember you and all you may be carrying in your grief these days.

(Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

I want to make a difference for those living with serious illness & loss in Montgomery County.
