Recognizing and welcoming families of all faiths and cultures.
Please join us for:
Our 9th Annual Candlelight Service
to honor the memory of children who have died,
regardless of age or reason.
When: Wednesday, December 6, 2017
We will gather at 7:00 p.m. at the Angel of Hope Children’s Memorial Park. We encourage you to dress warmly as we will not be gathering at the church this year, only at the park.
A special dedication will take place for the memorial tiles placed on the Wall of Love this year as well as for the newly adopted trees.
Candles for this service will be provided. Please feel free to bring a white flower in memory of your loved one to be placed at the base of the Angel statue.
The "Angel of Hope Children’s Memorial Park," in Virginia, Minnesota, is part of a national and international network of memorial parks that provide a place of comfort and hope to parents, family members and friends who grieve the loss of a child. There are over one hundred such parks in existence. The initial memorial statue and subsequent memorial parks were inspired by the book “The Christmas Box” by the author Richard Paul Evans.
The Friends of the Children’s Memorial park will provide hot drinks & cookies following the service at the Kline Cuppolletti Building located near the park on Silver Lake.
