Our annual Candle Lighting Service, held each December, provides the opportunity to remember all of the loved ones no longer with us. Join us on Wednesday, December 17 in Story Chapel (located just inside our Entrance) for this seasonal program of words and music. During the service, you will have the opportunity to light a candle in honor of someone you wish to remember. Weather permitting, we will place the lighted candles in nearby Asa Gray Garden at the conclusion of the event. Candles will be sold at the program.

Speakers for the 2014 Candle Lighting Service:

Greg M. Epstein
Humanist Chaplain, Harvard University

Rev. Rosemarie Smurzynski
Unitarian Universalist Minister

We will host a reception immediately following the service. We hope you will join us in Bigelow Chapel for refreshments and conversation. ¬†Refreshments donated by Vicki Lee’s¬†(Belmont) and Jules Catering (Somerville).

Staff will be on hand to assist with parking when you arrive for the event.
