The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting

DECEMBER 13, 2020

Around the world: VIRTUAL

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting

The Compassionate Friends/USA will offer a virtual worldwide candle lighting on December 13 starting at 6:45pm for Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific Time Zones.

Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from The Compassionate Friends, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. TCF’s WWCL started in the United States in 1997 as a small internet observance, but has since swelled in numbers as word has spread throughout the world of the remembrance. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.

Register now to attend the candle lighting at 6:45 PM for central time zone below:
