Night of Remembrance
May 22, 2022 6:30pm
Address: Valley Community Baptist Church, 590 West Avon Rd, Avon, CT US 06001
A Ceremony for the Community
Gather in the comfort of friends, loved ones, and neighbors for an outdoor “Night of Remembrance” at Valley Community Baptist Church on Sunday, May 22, at 6:30 p.m. Many of us have not been able to properly and publicly grieve or pay tribute to lost loved ones this past year. This night is for you and for those we honor with our memories.
The ceremony will reflect our Christian beliefs -- where real grief intersects with true hope -- but people of all faiths are most welcome. We will gather in the church parking lot. The 75-minute event will feature music, luminaries, a short message, a reading of loved ones lost, and more. We will be remembering more than 30 people at the ceremony.
No RSVP is required to simply attend the event. Please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, as we will be gathered in the parking lot. We'll move the ceremony indoors if rain prevents us from gathering outdoors.
