We invite you to join us on Sunday, November 22, 2015 for the annual Memorial Service of Light at 6 pm in the Chapel. This year, the service will be a reflective Taizé worship experience — with scripture, prayer, music and candlelight. Sung and chanted prayers, meditation, periods of silence, liturgical readings and private petitions offer us a way to connect with Jesus, our saviour, and feel his presence when we are grieving.

The Memorial Service of Light is a time to remember our loved ones who have died (recently or not). This service of music, candlelight, scripture and prayer is a beautiful way to honor your loved ones. The name of your loved one will be read and a candle lit in memory of them during the service. The names will be printed in the evening’s program. A short reception follows the service.
