2018 Hospice Ornament Released

Hospice Ornament

With support from MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown, Hospice of St. Mary’s has released its newest Christmas ornament. The 2018 Hospice Ornament features a beautiful, bright red cardinal.

Folklore says that when a cardinal appears close to us, it is the spirit of a deceased loved one paying us a visit. The Hospice Ornament features this special bird beautifully hand-painted on natural wood within a snowy scene.

These incredible, one-of-a-kind ornaments are available for just $20 each, and the proceeds benefiting Hospice of St. Mary’s. They can be found for sale now through the holiday season at local St. Mary’s County businesses such as Cecil’s Country Store in Great Mills, Century 21 in Lexington Park, and St. Inie’s Coffee in Lexington Park.

Ornaments can also be purchased at the Hospice House in Callaway. The office is open every Monday to Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm. It’s a good idea to call ahead to make sure there are ornaments available at the office for sale. The number is 301-994-3023.
