Annual Candle Lighting Ceremony

Every December, on the second Sunday at 5:00, an annual Candle Lighting Ceremony is held at the Christmas Box Angel of Hope. This very moving ceremony is a special time to remember and honor our children as the holidays approach. Thousands of other bereaved parents around the world honor their children by lighting candles on this day also, as it has been designated as the Worldwide Candle Lighting in memory of all children who died too soon. If you have purchased a brick, you will receive an invitation to this beautiful event. However, family and friends, as well as the general public are welcome to attend. Those attending are invited to bring flowers to lay at the base of the Angel. We encourage you to dress warmly.
