The Angel of Hope Prayer Service was created as a way for those who have lost children to mourn with others that understand their grief. On Saturday, December 1, the Gregorian Consortium, along with Mr. Basile and Mr. Bursig, traveled to Eisenhower Park to sing at this event. Every year, the Gregorian attend this event to offer uplifting religious music and a solemn presence as these families mourn their lost children.
The Angel of Hope Prayer Service is sponsored by Angela’s House, a not-for-profit begun to honor the life of Angela Policastro in order to bring awareness and assistance to medically frail children.
The Angel of Hope statue is located in Field 6 at Eisenhower Park.
