Unfortunately, our Memorial Christmas Trees will not be displayed this year at the New Ulm Medical Center due to current Covid restrictions. We are considering other locations and options, so please check back at a later date for an update.
WORLDWIDE CANDLE LIGHTING
Our December meeting is the WorldWide Candle Lighting ceremony on December 13th at Redeemer Lutheran Church at 7pm. There is no Monday meeting in December.
The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting on the 2nd Sunday in December unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who have died. As candles are lit on December 13th, 2020 at 7:00pm local time, hundreds of thousands of people commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon. The candle lighting creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held, and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died and will never be forgotten. See the TCF National website for more information about both virtual and in-person candle lighting events.
