Console ‘Christmas Celebration of Light’ in Swinford
Families and friends of people lost through suicide in Mayo are invited to come together to remember their loved ones at Console’s upcoming ‘Christmas Celebration of Light’. This special ceremony is one of the most important events in Console’s calendar and is held to commemorate the lives of those lost.
This is an evening of song, music, poetry and reflection. The focal point of the service will be the lighting of candles and a minute’s silence to recall all those who have died by suicide and are no longer with us on life’s journey.
Sunday 7th December 2014
