Worldwide Candle Lighting
The Compassionate Friends of the Pee Dee Area will participate in the Worldwide Candle Lighting on Dec. 10 in the St. Anthony Catholic Church’s Family Center, 2536 Hoffmeyer Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and candles will be lit beginning at 7 p.m. Please arrive closer to 6:30 p.m. to allow for announcement and poem readings as the candles are being lit.
The program is open to any family who has experienced the death of a child of any age, as well as the public wanting to show support. All are welcome to light a candle in memory of a loved one they have lost and wish to remember in this special way.
Candles and holders will be provided, as well as light refreshments and drinks, by the chapter. Feel free to bring a dessert or a simple dish that you wish to share.
The Worldwide Candle Lighting gives bereaved families the opportunity to remember their child . . . that their light may always shine.
