Unity Spiritual Center candle-lighting service to help bereaved families remember lost children

Candles will glow on Sunday, Dec. 9, when tens of thousands of bereaved parents, siblings, grandparents, relatives and friends around the globe join together to light remembrance candles to honor the memories of children who have died but will never be forgotten.

Unity Spiritual Center Westlake will offer its fourth annual service of remembrance and healing during the holiday season for those who lost a loved one too soon. The service will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will continue to 8:00 p.m. with candle lighting at 7:00 p.m. This service will be free and open to all regardless of faith or no faith background. An indoor labyrinth walk will be available after the service.

The candle-lighting ceremony is coordinated by The Compassionate Friends, an organization that helps those looking for purpose in a life that suddenly seems so empty. Whether your family has had a child die (at any age, from any cause) or you are trying to help those who have gone through this life-altering experience, The Compassionate Friends exists to provide friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the natural grieving process.
