Light a Candle

Lighting candles is a sacred ritual throughout the world. We light a candle for many purposes: to illuminate darkness, dedicate prayers, solidify intentions, offer blessings, or to nourish grateful living. We invite you to light this virtual candle in memory of a loved one.

Take a deep breath and center yourself.

Bring to mind memories of your loved one. Now, click on the candle and watch it light. Gaze at the flickering flames as you honor the memory of those you hold dear.

Be in this moment.

Speak what’s in your heart, silently or out loud. Say a prayer if you wish.

We wish you peace of mind, comfort and hope.

 

In this time of social distancing, our annual Circle of Lights is moving to a virtual format. On May 19, 2020, at 8:00 pm, we will livestream the Circle of Lights program and invite you to light a candle with us. We also offer a virtual candle for you to share on social media in honor of a loved one.

Add your loved one to our wall of remembrance now.
