Shepherd Home

                    Our Mission

                        Rooted in faith and love, we provide comfort 
                      and compassionate care to members of our 
                    community with a terminal illness, in a way
                  that cherishes the dignity of each individual and 
               meets their physical, emotional and spiritual 
           needs. We provide support to families and friends 
      and foster community acceptance that dying is an
integral part of living.
Shepherd Home is a two bedroom home in Penfield, NY that operates under the hospice philosophy, providing 24-hour care for the terminally ill in a residential setting. Shepherd Home offers physical, emotional and spiritual support to those facing the prospect of death. We also provide hospitality and support to family members and friends as well as bereavement counseling and community education.
2016 Wings of Light Luminaria

Honor and remember all the angels in your life, past and present, and help light up a long winter’s night.

With a small donation, a luminary will be personalized with the name of your loved one or someone you wish to honor. In previous years, the flickering glow from more than 400 luminaries could be seen lining a pathway from Shepherd Home’s front door all the way to Five Mile Line Drive. It’s a sight to behold and a wonderful opportunity for contemplation and remembrance.
  • Wings of Light luminaries are $10 each.

  • Please order your luminary by Friday, December 9.

  • The luminary display will be in front of Shepherd Home on Monday, December 12, 5:30 - 7:30 pm.

Everyone is invited join us that evening to enjoy the luminaries, hot cocoa, cookies and fellowship.

All proceeds will benefit the residents and the caring work of Penfield’s own comfort care home.

We thank you for your generous support!

You matter to the last moment of your life.

die peacefully, but to LIVE until you die.”
