Lifting Our Spirits Through Ceremonies of Remembrance

Come and share a Ceremony of Remembrance, in its second year – at the beautiful setting of the Netloft.  

November is a month which seems to be especially set aside as a time of remembrance. 

In the Spirit of Remembrance,  the Gabriola Ecumenical Society would like to offer an opportunity for all of us who have experienced the loss of those we have loved and cherished  to share in this special ceremony.

Family, friend or acquaintance  – in our grief we are left with the shadow of their memory, and memory reminds us of their presence in our lives.

In the candlelight, along with the cello music of Allanah Dow, participants can write down the names of persons they would like remembered. Their names will be read out as floating candles are lit and placed in a basin of water.

Allanah will play during this ceremony and will provide interludes for inspiring words of five presenters  –  as we listen and reflect on those we have lost and cared about deeply. 

It can be a very moving experience and we hope that you will join us in helping to “Lift our Spirits” as we share this gathering together. 

Donations appreciated.
