Candlelight Memorial

Join us on the third Sunday in May as we celebrate International Candlelight Memorial. A day we remember all who have gone before us and all of us who live with HIV and Aids. It would be nice to light a candle and place a red ribbon on the candle and pray the following prayer to commemorate International Candlelight Memorial.


We pray for greater awareness of HIV and AIDS,

For greater dignity and rights of people living with HIV and AIDS,

For more compassion and care,

For the rejection of discrimination and stigmatization,

For wider prevention activities that address root causes of vulnerability,

For efficient mobilization of resources and treatments,

For increased access to treatment and care,

For support for those left behind to grieve the loss of their loved ones,

For trust and hope in our God. Amen
