The Compassionate Friends Annual Candle Lighting!
On the 2nd Sunday in December, The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of our daughters, sons, brothers, sisters and grandchildren gone too soon. As candles are lit at 7PM local time, thousands of persons honor the memory of all our children who have died. Believed to be the largest mass candle lighting in the world, this annual event, a gift to you from TCF, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. Started in 1997 as a small internet observance, it has swelled in numbers as word has spread. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and many more informal candle lighting's are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died but will never be forgotten.
Our chapter participates in this event uniting families and friends everywhere with a beautiful program of music, readings, and lighting candles to honor the memories of our children, siblings and grandchildren.
