Compassionate Friends Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting

Sunday December 9th 6:30pm - 8:00pm

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting ceremony unites families and friends around the world in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of their sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who have died too soon. Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting in the world, this 22nd annual ceremony is a gift to the bereavement community from the Compassionate Friends. A virtual 24-hour wave of light is created as it moves from time zone to time zone. The Worldwide Candle Lighting gives families everywhere the opportunity to remember their children so that their lights may always shine!
