The Eternal Grove – Garden of Remembrance was inaugurated by the management of St John’s on Jan 29th,2020. It is a sacred space dedicated to the remembrance of those who have donated their bodies or organs to medical education and patients. On the occasion of All Souls Day, the student groups - Humanities Club and Ecologics under the guidance of the Health and Humanities Division started holding a remembrance function and prayer at the Eternal Grove from Nov 2, 2020.

This All Souls’ Day programme has become an annual function. The programme is held between 10 and 11 am and starts with an opening hymn by our medical student sisters, followed by a prayer service conducted by the Chaplain. Dr Manjulika from Humanities and Dr Stephen from Anatomy explain to the invitees the significance of the eternal grove, the remembrance function and the body donation programme at St John’s. Students from Ecologics, talk about the importance of remembering those who have helped in their education and describe the significance of the saplings chosen for the occasion. The special guests every year are family members of body donors who have passed away in the preceding year. They along with members of the Executive body of St John’s plant a sapling, light a lamp and share their feelings.
