Sign-up begins at 6"30 p.m., and the ceremony be- gins at 7 p.m., at Epworth United Methodist Church, Holland Glade Road, Rehoboth. "The experience of the death of my second child has stayed with me throughout my life, in forming both my experiences as a mom and my life in ministry," said Loughlin, who lost an infant son. "The title of my master's the- sis, 'Pastoral Care of a Family in the Death of an Infant,' was the direct result of my experience as a mother who lost a child." Her presentation, titled "Be- cause We Can," will focus on the intense pain at the death of one's child, and the opportunity for strength and growth when par- ents are surrounded by loving, supportive people. The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in remembering chil- dren who have died at any age from any cause. Candles are lit to honor the lost children. As candles are lit, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of people will commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultur- al, religious and political bound- aries. Now believed to be the largest mass ca dle-lighting ceremony on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting - a gift t9 the be- reavement community - creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died but will never be for- gotten. The Worldwide Candle Light- ing started in the United States in 1997, as a small internet obser- vance. It has swelled in numbers as word has spread throughout the world of the remembrance. The Lighthouse chapter participation in the event has been held for families in southern Delaware since 1999. Families are also invited to post a message in the Remem- brance Book, which will be avail- able during the event at compas- Last year, thousands of messages were re- ceived and posted from every U.S. state; Washington, D.C.; every territory; and dozens of other countries. Information on the Worldwide Candle Lighting and planned memorial candle lighting servic- es are posted on the website every year as the event nears. ate (t-r) Dunning, Jeall ~.~. ~ Robeda Wasill~, OTR, CHT, of MX~I~I)y. ! . - , ~ - ~ .i -~ .
