Light a Candle of Love, A Service of Remembrance at Holiday Time
Time: 2:00 pm
Since the holidays are a time for remembering, we are lighting a candle for those who are no longer with us. We have come to understand that prayer and remembrance bring about hope. By attending, one finds that being with a community of friends helps the healing process along. This annual service provides a message of hope, as well as encouragement on how to cope with the recent death of a loved one during the holidays. You are invited to bring a small framed photo of your loved one to display on our memory table during the service. Refreshments will be served. Open to the public. Reservations requested, but not required. Event held at Erin’s Pavilion, Southwind Park, 4965 S. Second St., Springfield.
