Compassionate Friends’ candle lighting on Dec. 14


AUBURN — The Compassionate Friends’ annual worldwide candle lighting takes place on the second Sunday in December in every time zone across the world.

The first candle is lit in Australia at 7 p.m. and works its way around the world for the next 24 hours.

Compassionate Friends is a support group for parents, grandparents and siblings who have lost a child.

The Maine Chapter will meet at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 14, at East Auburn Baptist Church, 560 Park Ave.

All are welcome, whether you attend the monthly meetings or not.

Bring a photo of your child for the memory table.

Candles will be provided, but feel free to bring a special candle of your own.
