For the Community

Attend the Candlelight and National Memorial Services

In 2022, the Candlelight Service and National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service will be open to the community provided the Covid-19 community risk levels for Frederick County, Maryland remain low. Please check the CDC’s Community Level page for the latest status.

You may also watch the 2022 Candlelight Service at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 8, and the Memorial Service at 10:00 am on Sunday, October 9, 2022 online on our website and our social media channels.

If weather prohibits holding the Candlelight Service outdoors at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 8, it will be limited to the families of the fallen firefighters due to indoor space limitations. The Memorial Service begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, October 9, 2022

Parking is at Mount St. Mary’s University along Route 15 and ride the shuttle buses to the campus. Plan to arrive at the parking area at least an hour ahead of time as you will need to go through a security checkpoint on campus.

We look forward to having you with us in 2022.
