Event Details

Friends and families of those who have lost children, family or friends will be gathering as part of a worldwide event creating a 24-hour wave of light across the globe to give all bereaved families and friends everywhere the opportunity to remember those no longer with us. The event will begin with registration at 6:30 pm with lighting of the ceremonial candle promptly at 7:00 pm. Attendees are invited to bring a flameless candle to participate in the candle lighting. After the candle lighting there will be time for fellowship and remembrance. Attendees are also invited to bring pictures of their loved one for a table of remembrance. We will be reading the names of all children who have departed during the program; please register names at the beginning of the event so that we have a complete list of all names.

Remember, everyone is someone’s child. Anyone feeling the loss of a friend or loved one regardless of their age or when they died is invited to join us to honor their memory. Please support this international memorial event to honor and remember all of those who are missed during this holiday season.
