On November 3, 2020 Goshen Community Care & Hospice received a check in the amount of $500. From the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal through its Vicariate Outreach Program. The funding will help Goshen Community Care & Hospice continue its mission of Community Service in Goshen. We thank the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal program for helping us during this difficult year.
About the Archbishop Annual Appeal- Since 1981, the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal has been able to assist tens of thousands of people- regardless of race, religion, or color—across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, education, housing, emergency expenses and in numerous other areas. It is through the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach Program and the generosity of its donors that the Appeal is able to assist a wide array of community-based charities throughout Hartford, New Haven and Litchfield Counties.
Due to Covid/CDC restrictions, our annual “Light up a Life” ceremony will not be held as an in person event this December. Instead we will be videotaping the ceremony around mid-December and will then post a link to our site for public viewing.
Mid-December please visit the the “Light up a Life ” events page for access to the video link. Apologies to everyone who looks forward to starting off the holiday season with this lovely event.
