Christmas isn’t always happy. For those who are grieving, the holiday season can be excruciating. On December 22nd, we will gather on one of the longest nights of the year to sing quiet songs, make space for grief and hope, and remember the coming of Christ without all the tinsel and reindeer. This service is a part of the Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting and we will invite parents who have lost children to light a candle in memory of their children.
We hope you will also bring a photo or memento connected to any loved ones you've lost. We will use these during the service.
Come if you are lonely, grieving, or having a difficult time this holiday season. Be with others who are also feeling blue.
