Join us to remember and celebrate the life of someone special…

Light up a Life is our annual celebration of everything that St Clare stands for – joining together with families from across our community in honour of their loved ones. Candles are lit as we remember, with every shining light representing the life and memories of a loved one.

We know how much our annual Light up a Life services mean to so many families across West Essex and East Herts and so we are doing our very best
to make arrangements so that these events can take place safely. This year, we hope that we will still be able to hold the unique services that our supporters know and love – albeit in a slightly different way due to Covid-19 restrictions.

This year, we have had to restrict the number of services taking place across our catchment area, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are delighted that a service in Ongar will still be taking place. Candles are lit at the service, every shining light representing the life and memories of a loved one. Everyone, of all faiths and none, is welcome to attend this free service, not just those who have experienced St Clare’s support first-hand.

Our Ongar event will be held at the St Martin’s Church on Wednesday 9th December 2020 at 4.00pm. Car parking is available on the High Street, Sainsbury’s car park or the Library car park.
