Candle Lighting Service
Our annual Candle Lighting Service, held each December, provides the opportunity to remember all of the loved ones no longer with us. Join us in Story Chapel 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.
This year’s speakers are Reverend Joy Fallon, Senior Minister, King’s Chapel Boston and Reverend Jennifer Beal, St. Priest- in- Charge, St. John’s Church, Sharon, MA.
Candles will be sold at the program but can also be ordered in advance through our online store.
We will host a reception immediately following the service. We hope you will join us in the newly renovated Bigelow Chapel for refreshments and conversation. Refreshments donated by Jules Catering of Somerville and Vicki Lee’s of Belmont.
Staff will be on hand to assist with parking when you arrive for the event.
