Calvert Hospice

Butterfly Release & Memorial

Each year, Calvert Hospice hosts a Butterfly Release & Memorial Service for those who want to celebrate the life of a loved one. The 2021 Butterfly Release will be held at Jefferson Patterson Park on September 18 at 2 pm. The ceremony incorporates music, reflections, and a brief service of healing and hope that concludes with the release of butterflies.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Butterfly Release was cancelled. This year, we are offering the memorial service to families who lost loved ones in hospice care during 2020 and 2021. Due to health and safety precautions related to group sizes, the 2021 event will not be open to the public. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to invite community members to the Butterfly Release in 2022.
