Angel of Hope “Christmas Box Angel Ceremony” (Facebook Live)
Facebook live, virtual Angel of Hope ceremony on December 6th, 9pm EST.
This event is for people who have lost children and those seeking to comfort them.
We normally gather at our statues but due to COVID-19, the Angel of Hope Candle Light Ceremony at Eisenhower Park is cancelled for 2020.
The author of “A Christmas Box”, Richard Paul Evans is hosting this virtual event from his home in Salt Lake City.
Richard Paul Evans’ book inspired the original Angel of Hope statue and he has agreed to do a Facebook Live
The Christmas Box Angel Statue was introduced to the world in the book The Christmas Box, a worldwide bestseller and hit television movie by author Richard Paul Evans. In the book, a woman mourns the loss of her child at the base of an angel monument. Though the story is mostly fiction, the angel monument once existed but is speculated to have been destroyed. The new angel statue was commissioned by Richard Paul Evans, in response to reports that grieving parents were seeking out the angel as a place to grieve and heal. The monument was dedicated on December 6, 1994-corresponding with the date of the child’s death in The Christmas Box. (Coincidentally, Dec. 6th is celebrated in many parts of the world as Children’s Day).
