Annual Worldwide Candle Lighting to be held Dec. 12

December 8th, 2010 by Democrat Staff in News

The annual Worldwide Candle lighting occurs every year on the second Sunday in December. Everyone, in every time zone around the world, is invited to light a candle in honor of all children who have died, that their light may always shine.

As candles go out in one time zone, they will be lit in the next, creating a wave of light that will encircle the globe. Please join in the 24-hour memorial by lighting a candle wherever you are, at 7 p.m. on Dec. 12.

The Mid-MO TCF Chapter invites you to share in a candlelight program in memory of our children on Dec. 12, at 6 p.m., at the Wesley United Methodist Church, 2727 Wesley Drive, Jefferson City, MO. The program will be followed by dessert and fellowship.
