2018 World Wide Candle Lighting Ceremony

Please join us for the Prince William Chapter of the Compassionate Friends hosting the 22nd Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony. The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon. As candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon. The ceremony consists of readings of poems, songs, stories and reading of our Angel’s names with candles being lit.

There will be space to share photos of your child and there will be a potluck/fellowship/social immediately following the Candle Lighting. Please bring a food item to share.

Please share this with anyone you think
would be interested.

Note: There is a video slide presentation during the ceremony of pictures of our children. If you would like your child’s pictures to be included in the slide presentation, please send no more than 5 pictures to Shane Williams, Chapter Leader, at: Photos must be submitted no later than (NLT) December 1, 2018.
