World Wide Candle Lighting

Worldwide Candle Lighting Service

December 11, 2022
7:00 PM 
The 2nd Sunday in December
Every year on the 2nd Sunday of December, our TCF Marin Chapter joins thousands of other TCF chapters throughout the world in a worldwide candle lighting service to honor the memories of all children, regardless of age, who have died before their time. 
This year, The Compassionate Friends of Marin’s Candle Lighting Ceremony, in honor of all children and young people who have died, will be held at 7 PM, Sunday, December 11, via Zoom. Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: Each attendee will have time to light a candle, say their name and show a photo as well.
The format will be the same, including lighting a candle for each child by everyone in attendance, music and the video presentation with the children’s pictures. 
If you would like your child to be included in our “Children’s Memorial Video" please send a digital photo to:

Radha Stern

All photos must be to me by November 21, 2022. A high resolution jpeg is the best. Please include your child’s name, birth and death dates. Please put “Candle Lighting” on the subject line of the email.

I will let you know I received the photo.

A virtual light will be lit to honor each child or young person. Each attendee will have time to light a candle and say their names, as well. We hope you will join us at 7 PM, December 11th by clicking the Zoom link above.
