As the holidays approach, we are reminded of the importance of caring for each other, especially this time of the year, when our pain of loss can seem the most unbearable. At The Compassionate Friends, we offer support and comfort throughout the year, but we especially understand the importance during this time of year. One of our most beloved programs, our Worldwide Candle Lighting, is being offered this weekend.
If you’re able to, we’d love to have you join The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting this Sunday, December 10, 2023. Our annual candle lighting unites people across the globe to honor the memories of our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left us too soon. At 7:00 p.m. local time, candles will be lit to create a 24-hour wave of light.
This year marks the 27th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting acknowledging National Children’s Memorial Day. Our Candle Lighting is TCF’s gift to the bereavement community to pay tribute to the lives and memories of these special and always-loved children. Please join The Compassionate Friends in creating a virtual 24-hour wave of light in honor of all our children.
