Light up a Life marks the beginning of the festive season at Cornwall Hospice care and is an uplifting and peaceful way in which to remember the lives of loved ones at this special time of year.
Our popular Light up a Life service at Truro Cathedral comprises carols, prayers, readings and music by children from a local school. During the service the lights on the Christmas tree outside will be switched off and during the last carol the tree is relit symbolising the lives of those we are remembering. Those in the cathedral can watch this on a screen during the service. After the service join us for refreshments where the remembrance books will be displayed. The books will remain in the Cathedral and can be viewed at certain times on Wednesdays and Saturdays during December. There will also be card stars available for you to write a personal message and hang on the main Cathedral tree.
