Lawrenceville, Ga. (December 1, 2010) –The Congregational Health Ministry of Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC) hosted its annual Lights of Love and Remembrance event on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, 7–8 p.m. The event took place in the Gallery of the GMC–Duluth Outpatient Center, located at 3805 Pleasant Hill Road, Duluth, GA 30096. This event, which is free and open to the public, focused on remembering and honoring beloved members of the greater Gwinnett community.

Scheduled speakers included Nancy Harris, mayor of Duluth; Jeff Nowlin, chief operating officer of Gwinnett Medical Center and president of GMC–Lawrenceville; Lynne Mouchet, chaplain at GMC–Duluth; and Jean Holley, GMC director of Congregational Ministries. The Peachtree Ridge High School String Ensemble will provide holiday music for program attendees.

The Lights of Love and Remembrance event offered an opportunity to honor loved ones through the purchase of luminaries, the proceeds of which directly benefit the GMC Parish Nurse program. Parish Nurses serve as ministers in faith communities to provide whole person (mind, body and spirit) health and wellness counseling, education, support and referral for the faith community and others.
