Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day – PAIL Network Hosted In-Person Wave of Light Events

October 15, 2023 @ 6:45 PM - 8:00 PM



Join PAIL Network volunteers on October 15 in the following communities for a memorial ceremony and International Wave of Light at 7 pm. Families participate in every time zone across the world at 7 pm local time, creating a 24 hour Wave Of Light around the globe.

PAIL Network volunteers will light a community candle during the ceremony to honour the babies we have lost though miscarriage, stillbirth, medical termination and infant death.  Families are encouraged to bring their own memorial candle to light, and any mementos, stuffed animals, blankets, etc., that help them feel close and connected to their baby’s memory.  Thank you for sharing your babies with us.
