HONOR someone whose life impacts yours.
REMEMBER a loved one who has passed away.
CELEBRATE the caregivers of Ecumen of Litchfield that make a difference in your life.
Your Honor Light will be shared with others during a special ceremony in the Augustana Chapel starting at 6:30 pm with music and a short program. Following this we will have a champagne reception and cupcakes in the Gloria Dei Dining Room. All proceeds from Lights of Honor will be used for the purchase of chairs for Emmaus and Emmanuel. It truly is a “Chair-ity Event”.
For more information, call Joyce Aakre at 320-373-6637. You can purchase your Honor Lights by visiting our Ecumen Lights of Honor webpage. This event is independent of our annual Lights of Love sponsored by the Ecumen of Litchfield Home Health and Hospice.
We appreciate your support and hope to see you on September 26!

The Ecumen Lifestyle Covenant is key to creating community for Ecumen of Litchfield's independent and assisted living residents. It is an agreement that we and our customers shape together to ensure that we’re both working collaboratively to empower individual customers in living the lifestyle that person desires. We believe it is through empowerment that we honor the people we serve. The Lifestyle Covenant begins with a series of questions that our customer and Ecumen team member discuss and explore together.
