Annual “Light Up A Life” Event

Each year, we hold the “Light Up a Life” Service of Remembrance to honor and celebrate those we have lost.  We invite participants to bring a photo of their loved one, to share a story or memory, to light a candle, and to release a butterfly.  Musical presentations bring solace and a time of reflection, and readings as well as words of encouragement are offered for strength on the grief journey.  The event is open to the community, as well as those we have served during the past year.
