This moving service encouraged family and friends to reflect on the precious lives of children no longer with us, honouring their memory through the lighting of lanterns and hanging personal notes of thoughts and wishes on the Christmas tree.  

The service conducted by Celebrant Marg Fitzpatrick gave everyone within our community the opportunity to gather together in a caring and comfortable environment alongside others experiencing the grief of losing a child.
