The Love Light Tree at The First Church in Belfast following lighting ceremony Dec. 2.

Residents of of the Belfast area and members of The First Church came together in peace and love to remember their loved ones in a tree-lighting ceremony Dec. 2.

Following an Advent carol sing, the group honored the names and memories of loved ones who have passed, then gathered on the church steps to observe the lighting of the Love Light Tree on the front lawn.

The lights of the tree, which represent each person being remembered, will continue to shine throughout the holiday season as a symbol of love and in the spirit of remembrance for all to enjoy.

This was the second annual lighting of the Love Light evergreen at The First Church. The hope is that the light will continue to grow each year as more community members join in honoring those they've lost.
