Candlelight Service for Bereaved Parents

Candlelight

The loss of a child can be particularly difficult to cope with during the holidays. Whether your loss is recent or not, keeping your loved one’s life and memory a part of your Christmas celebration, can help to cope with the pain this season so often brings. The candlelight service is nondenominational. Everyone experiencing this loss is welcome. The evening will include selected readings and tributes; thoughts on coping with the holidays and a memorial candle for each family to take home. A memory table will be available if you would like to display a picture or another special memory of your child(ren). The candlelight service is held annually in December, in partnership with the Territorial Drive Alliance Church. To check if this year's date has been chosen yet, go to our Candlelight Service page.
