Candlelight Vigil & Procession
In recognition of World AIDS Day, the ACW will once again be hosting a Community Vigil at the Capitol Theatre. The Candlelight processional walk will embark at 6:00pm from the ACW, located at 511 Pelissier Street, to the Capitol Theatre. Candles will be provided. Capitol Theatre doors open at 6:00pm with the ceremony to occur from 6:15pm to 7:00pm. Following the processional, the ACW will be providing a space for community members to come together to acknowledge World AIDS Day and commemorate those whose lives have been lost to an AIDS related illness, and to celebrate those who continue to live with HIV today. This will be a short ceremony with a brief welcome from the Executive Director and Board President followed by “Honouring our Losses, Remembrance Hope – Candle Lighting Ceremony”. There will also be poinsettias available where individuals can tie holiday messages for loved ones. Following the ceremony, there will be light refreshment and fellowship.
