“To coincide with the other Australian states’ Candle Lighting Ceremonies, that honour those who have died because of Domestic violence, the Coalition of Women’s DV Services of SA will be holding their inaugural Annual Candle Lighting Vigil on the 7th of May 2014 and subsequently on the first Wednesday of May each year.

We invite you to gather at the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Garden, opposite Elder Park at 5.30 pm. There will be a short address from Professor Anne Edwards, Chairperson of the Australian Centre for Excellence, followed by reflections from family members who have lost loved ones because of domestic violence.

Candles will be provided for the candle lighting and there will be a short performance by the WOW (World of Women) Choir.”
