Wings of Healing Tree Illumination Event

In East Chicago, St. Catherine Hospital Auxiliary will host their 24th annual Wings of Healing tree lighting Tuesday, December 10, at the hospital. Proceeds from the sale of angel ornaments help support scholarships for area students pursuing careers in healthcare. Individuals, businesses and organizations can have an angel hung on the tree and personalized Angel of Hope cards are sent to honorees or families. The gift of an angel honors those who may be ill or are facing challenges in their life. It can also be hung to celebrate a victory or commemorate an important moment in a person’s life.  As a result of the Wings of Healing program, more than $110,000 in educational funding has been awarded to area residents through the scholarship program over the years. To learn more about the program or to purchase an angel ornament, call 219-392-7009. To download a donation form, visit
