St. Catharines Candelight Vigil

We invite you to join us for the first annual Candlelight Vigil to bring awareness for Pregnancy and Infant Loss, being held at St. Catharines City Hall on Sunday October 15, 2017. People who have experienced any kind of child loss, whether it be through miscarriage, stillborn or infant loss, live it daily, and once a year, people worldwide gather together to bring comfort to one another and share their experiences. This October 15th, be a part of the continuous wave of light that will be shining worldwide at 7pm.

October 15th is a day to remember our lost babies, those babies that we no longer get to hold in our aching arms. This is a day for anyone who is affected by this to come together and acknowledge all of those babies, to say their names and tell their story if they wish. This is a time where we don’t have to grieve in silence or in darkness. We can say our babies’ names with a smile AND with a tear if needed, no matter what, it’s a time to remember that even the littlest of footprints leave big imprints in this world, regardless of how long they were here for.

Come prepared with a flameless LED candle, and at 7pm join us at City Hall to light our candles to remember YOUR baby. Whether you are a parent, a grandparent, a sibling or relative, or even just a friend, we welcome all of you to join together to bring a little bit of light into an otherwise very dark world.

…they say it takes a village to raise a baby… it would stand true that it would take a village to grieve a baby who didn’t make it home…
