Lyme Church Hosts Gathering with Candles for COVID Victims, Prayers for Peaceful Inauguration, Tuesday

LYME — The First Congregational Church of Lyme will join the National Lighting Ceremony, Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 5:30 p.m. when all are welcome to gather on the church lawn for candle lighting in memory of those lost to COVID-19, and conclude with prayers for peace during the Presidential Inauguration being held the following day.

This will be a very short event and held only if the weather permits.

Attendees are requested to wear masks, and households should distance from other households.

Even if the weather does not allow the gathering, local residents should listen for the church bells, which will toll at 5:30 p.m. in concert with churches all over the country celebrating the National Lighting Ceremony.
