Candle lighting to honor memories of children will be held Dec. 9

-A A +A

Candles will glow Sunday, Dec. 9 when tens of thousands of bereaved parents, siblings, grandparents, relatives, and friends around the globe will join together to light remembrance candles to honor the memories of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
Held annually the second Sunday in December, this will be the 16th Worldwide Candle Lighting sponsored by The Compassionate Friends (TCF), the nation’s largest self-help bereavement organization for families that have suffered the tragic loss of a child. TCF has more than 650 chapters in the United States, with sister organizations in at least 30 countries around the globe.
The Worldwide Candle Lighting is open to all who wish to participate, whether by sponsoring or attending a service open to the public, joining in a small gathering, or lighting a candle in the quiet solitude of their homes or wherever they may be.
The local Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting will be held Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012. There will be a service at 7 p.m., Eastern Time, in Campbellsville at the Kid-Wise Building near Miller Park and at 7 p.m., Central Time, in Greensburg at the building in Legion Park.
The Memorial trees at each park will also be decorated. Please bring an ornament if you wish to decorate the tree in honor and memory of your child. We also have a few available ornaments if you prefer to use ours.

Candles will be provided.  Feel free to bring any pictures or mementos to share with the group.  A memory table will be available.
