Calendar of Events

        We invite families to join us as we will have our final meeting for 2015 on November 11  as we make final plans for the 19th annual Candle Lighting ceremony. We look forward to seeing you all soon. 
       Our World Wide Candle Lighting was a beautiful event that brought families together before the holidays to celebrate in unison the memory of their children. The whole globe wil once again come together beginning with New Zealand at 7 pm through 8 pm their local time and traveled from time zone to time zone to create a virtual wave of light across the planet.  The Compassionate Friends Candle lighting is know to be the largest lighting celebration in the world that transcends all social-economic, ethnic, religious and political boundaries.   Happy and safe Holidays to all, wishes for peace, joy and serenity above all.
     From all the families of Cincinnati's West Side chapter 
 The 2015 Candle Lighting will be held for the second year at the Underground located at 1205 Smiley Road. We will welcome families to join us at 6.15 PM. The main candle will be lit promptly at 7.00 PM. Families will pass along the flame until all candles are burning brightly. The candles will remain lit for the entire ceremony. 
  Families are asked to bring along their favorite image of their child in a frame that they can share with other.
