Worldwide Candle Lighting ~ Sunday, December 8th, 2013

2013 WCL logo


Dear Friends and Families,
The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon. As candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the 17th annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from The Compassionate Friends, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. 
Please join us in honoring those who lost their fight with Niemann-Pick Disease in 2013, and all those who were gone too soon
