Since we cannot be together this year due continued health precautions related to the coronavirus pandemic, we are hosting this online service of remembrance.  The service will culminate with a collective candle-lighting as each online participant ‘lights’ a candle in honor and memory of their deceased loved ones. Feel free to use a standard or electronic candle as part of the closing ceremony.

Dado que este año no podemos estar juntos debido a las continuas precauciones de salud relacionadas con la pandemia de coronavirus, vamos a ofrecer este servicio de conmemoración en línea. La ceremonia culminará con una encendida colectiva de velas, en la cual cada participante en línea enciende una vela en honor y memoria a los seres queridos que han fallecido. Puede usar cualquier tipo de vela como parte de la ceremonia.

If  you would like a Kara branded electric 2.5″ votive candle to use as part of the service, you can pick one up during the two weeks prior to the service a the Kara main office.  The office at 457 Kingsley Avenue in Palo Alto will be open during the following times to pick up a votive:

Monday 11/22,  9am – 5pm
Tuesday 11/23,  9am – 1pm
Monday 11/29,  9am – 5pm
Wednesday 12/1,  9am – 3pm
Wednesday 12/8, 9am – 2pm

These candles are offered complimentary to our community (one per person) while supplies last.
