Erlanger Health System’s Never Forgotten program will host the 22nd annual Moments to Share candle lighting service on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul in honor of all babies who died before, during or after birth. 
 
Erlanger invites families who have suffered the loss of a baby to come together during the holiday season to honor the memory of their child. Families are encouraged to bring poems, pictures and precious memories of their babies to display at the service.
 
 
“Our hope is that families suffering during this holiday season will find this service to be a time of healing and reflection,” said Lisa Cahill, Women’s Systems and Bereavement coordinator, Erlanger Health System. “Please come and light a candle in honor of your child and receive a remembrance gift during this season of light, promise and life.” 
 
The bilingual Spanish and English speaking service will be held at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul, 214 East 8th St. This event is open to anyone in the community, whether their loss was recent or long ago.
