Northern Fairfield County Wave of Light (Virtual Event)
October 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As part of October’s National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month, at 7 p.m. local time on Thursday, October 15, people around the world will light a candle on behalf of the babies gone too soon. This virtual event page is designed for local Northern Fairfield families and friends to have a space to share pictures of their candles burning, pictures of their children, to simply speak their babies names, and also hopefully connect and support one another. This is also a space for anyone who wants to support these families by lighting a candle.
Please join us for the Northern Fairfield County Wave of Light!
