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 Tuesday, December 18, 2012 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. You can pre-pay for your candle through our web store.   Speakers this year will include: 
Reverend Stephen Kendrick Senior Minister, First Church in Boston 
Swami Tyagananda Hindu Chaplain, MIT and Harvard University  
We will host a reception immediately following the service.  We hope you will join us in Bigelow Chapel for refreshments and conversation.  Catering is generously donated by Jules Catering of Somerville, MA and Vicki Lee’s of Belmont, MA. Staff will be on hand to assist with parking when you arrive for the event.
