Sanford Health will host a “Holding the Light” candlelight vigil Monday evening.
“This pandemic has been hard for all of us, especially for those in health care,” shared Theresa Gehrke-Herwynen, chaplain for the Bemidji region of Sanford Health.
“As we head into this winter and continue through this current wave, we wanted to invite community members to join us for a candlelight vigil and silent prayers in support of our area’s health caregivers during this difficult time, patients who are battling COVID-19 and remember the 66 members of our community we have lost to COVID-19.”
The vigil will be on the east side of the Bemidji Medical Center at 5 p.m. Masks are required and attendees will need to bring their own candles and means of lighting them.
