Upcoming bereavement events
Annual candle lighting ceremony
Every year on the second Sunday in December, we hold a candle lighting ceremony to honor all children who have died. The Bereavement Program offers this special memorial event as part of The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting®. This global event unites hundreds of thousands around the world in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age, from any cause.
