Preparations for the Oct. 15 Candlelighting

The big day is coming up. Pregnancy Loss Remembrance Day is Thursday, Oct. 15. Remember to light your candle from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. your time to participate in the International Wave of Light.

I spent today making votives for the people coming to the one here in Austin, Texas. If you are hosting one, and would like to use this label for votives of your own, feel free to right-click and “Save picture as.” It is designed for standard address labels, Avery 8160. It does not have to be printed in color. It looks good in black and white too.

The Austin candle lighting will be at the lighted fountains in Butler Park, which is behind the Parmer Events Center (Long Center.) It’s easiest to park along the street on Riverside. We generally light them by the water’s edge, but you will find us by our candles.

Here are the final votives and how they turned out. You can get little candles like these for about $4 a dozen.

Blessings to all of you who will mark this day for your lost babies.

  1. Hi,

    The candles look great! My husband and I and some of our friends are attending the candlelighting tomorrow night and was wondering if there is anything we would need to bring with us?


  2. I recommend bringing at least one candle that is protected in a deep glass jar in case it is windy, so they won’t all blow out.

  3. Thanks for these beautiful labels. We don’t have a organized group in the town that I live in, just yet ๐Ÿ˜‰ but there are several women in my neighborhood that I would love to gift these to. Thanks again! Lots of love today, and everyday ๐Ÿ™‚
