Worldwide Candle Lighting

Each year instead of having a regular, monthly meeting in December, we hold a special Candle Lighting Service.  It is a service that is held in chapters around the world on the second Sunday in December.  It is an opportunity to remember our children, light a candle for them, share in beautiful music, and support each other during a difficult time of year.  It is a community service, so we invite any family or friends to come and remember the children that we have lost.

This year our service on December 10, 2023, at 6:15 PM will be held at Westminster Presbyterian in Sioux Falls. It is also available via livestream here.  We will have music, an opportunity to say our children’s names, as well as light candles for them, and a slideshow with all of their names and pictures.  For those participating via livestream, please have a candle ready at home to light at that portion of the program.  If you would like to have your child included, please email a picture to  If your child has been in past slidesows and you would like to continue to have him or her in the slideshow this year, please go to the link below and fill out the form there.
