Candle Lighting to Remember Children Who Have Died (updated!)

  • Cathedral of All Souls - Parish Hall 9 Swan Street Asheville, NC 28803 usa (map)

*** Due to the Winter Storm expected on Dec 8-9, we are re-scheduling the Candle Lighting for Saturday, Dec 15th! Please help us to spread the word. Thanks!***

We are very pleased to be hosting another Candle Lighting Event to Honor the Children in our lives who have passed through this world. Our gathering is in conjunction with the annual worldwide celebrations organized by groups affiliated with The Compassionate Friends, an international organization that supports families who are living with the death of a child.

We come together this evening to honor our beloveds and to remind ourselves of the wide network of love and support to which we each belong.

All family members & friends are welcome to join us!

In addition to our communal candle lighting, we will hear from invited guests and enjoy refreshments afterwards.

You will find free street parking throughout Biltmore Village. We encourage everyone to arrive shortly before 7pm. **Please note that there is another event taking place at All Souls that evening, so you may want to allow yourself some extra time to park and walk.
