Circle of Healing and Hope
The Circle of Healing & Hope provides a place for solace, prayer and reflection on the front lawn of the hospital.
A Place of Hope and Healing
The Circle of Healing & Hope, located on the beautiful grounds of CVPH, provides a place for serenity and healing as well as giving hope and strength through stressful times. It is also an opportunity to honor or memorialize a child, close family member or friend. Granite pavers, in two sizes, offer you the opportunity to support this special place and to create a personal message for your loved one.
An Angel of Hope is the centerpiece of the Circle of Healing & Hope. The angel is based on the angel statue in Richard Paul Evan's novel "The Christmas Box" and is the 102nd angel of its kind in the United States.
Annual Candlelight Vigil
Each year on December 6th at 4 pm, an annual candlelight vigil takes place at the Circle of Healing & Hope - and at all Angel of Hope statues around the country. While we normally welcome people to join us for this special ceremony, we decided to hold this year's ceremony virtually in light of the ongoing pandemic. Watch video of this year's ceremony below:
To submit names to be read at the next ceremony, please e-mail us.
Pavers are sold throughout the year and are installed annually in the late spring. Each summer, The Foundation holds a re-dedication ceremony to recognize the addition of new pavers to the Circle. The annual deadline for paver installation within that year is May 1st. Watch this year's 10th annual re-dedication ceremony below:
