History of the Worldwide Candle Lighting
The Worldwide Candle Lighting started in the USA in 1997 by The Compassionate Friends (TCF) as a small Internet observance. It has since grown as word about the remembrance has spread throughout the world. During the memorial service, candles will be lit from 7-8 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone around the world, commemorating and honoring children who have died. You are invited to post a message in the Remembrance Book which will be available on December 13 on line at www.compassionatefriends.org. Every year, thousands of messages are posted in memory of children. This year will be the seventh candle lighting sponsored by the Sacramento-South Placer County Chapter of the BP/USA. Our local children will be remembered during this very beautiful and touching memorial service. Families are invited to bring friends. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide child care.
