The 33rd annual “Light A Candle Remembrance Ceremony,” for anyone who has been touched by the death of a child of any age, will be held Tuesday, December 3, 7 p.m., at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral on Goldsborough Street. Parents, grandparents, siblings and friends are encouraged to join in this ceremony to honor and remember their loved one.
The remembrance service, presented by the Child Loss Support Group and Talbot Hospice, includes music by the Allegro Chorus, a special message by Rabbi Peter E. Hyman, prayer, inspirational readings, and candle-lighting. It concludes in the churchyard with families placing white bows on a memorial tree as their child’s name is read aloud. All are invited for light refreshments and fellowship immediately
following the service in Miller Hall which is located behind the church.
White bows will be available for all families that attend. Families are asked to come early if you would like to personalize a bow with your child’s name or a message. Throughout the holiday season, the lights and ribbons are a reminder that all of the children who have died are being remembered.
For more information about the ceremony and support services for bereaved parents, please contact Talbot Hospice Bereavement Coordinator Becky DeMattia at 410-822-6681 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
