Candle service to remember children

For the 15th year, a self-help group called Compassionate Friends will hold a worldwide candle ceremony to remember children of any age who have died.

This year’s event will be Dec. 11. The group’s Johnson County chapter will take part with a service at 6:45 p.m. at the College Church of the Nazarene, Uphaus Hall, 2020 E. Sheridan St., Olathe. Luminaries will guide visitors to the Garrett entrance and signs will point to the hall.

The service will include the reading of children’s names, as well as music and poems. The public is welcome to attend.
