Every year, cards placed on the Memory Tree at St. Vital Centre over the holiday season are collected, blessed and burned in a ceremony at Assiniboine Park. We invite those who filled in cards at the Tree, and those wishing to remember their loved ones, to join us and celebrate at this unique event. 

Due to the fire bans and dry conditions this summer, and the continued uncertainty about large gatherings, we have decided to cancel this year’s Light the Memories Card Burning Ceremony.

Cards collected in 2020 will be combined with those from this year’s Memory Tree when conditions allow in 2022.
