Candle Lighting Service

Mount Auburn Cemetery's annual Candle Lighting Service, held each December, provides the opportunity to remember all of the loved ones no longer with us.

Join Mount Auburn in the Story Chapel (located just inside the Entrance) for this seasonal program of words and music. During the service, you will have the opportunity to light a candle in honor of someone you wish to remember. Candles will be sold at the program.
