In early November, lights will shine brightly in the night as family and friends honor the memory of those they have lost in a beautiful, peaceful and meaningful way.
The St. Luke’s Hospice 11th Annual Luminaria Lighting will be held on Saturday November 11, at 5:30 pm. The event will be held at Becky’s Drive-In which is located at 4548 Lehigh Drive in Walnutport. The community is invited to participate to honor the people in their lives that have passed, whether recent or years ago. Loss knows no time limits, so their life and light will shine at the Luminaria Lighting.
The luminaria, which consist of votive candles illuminated in small paper bags, represent light and hope. The lighting is part of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Month observations.
During the St. Luke’s Hospice Luminaria Lighting, guests will arrive at 5:00 pm and receive a welcome bag that includes a personal luminary kit, bereavement resource information and water. Guests will then enter through the driveway lined with luminaria lighting their way.
The evening’s program will be presented on the drive-in theater movie screen. The St. Luke’s Hospice Team will guide a collective lighting of the luminaria along with shared messages of inspiration, hope and reflection.
The event is offered free of charge because of generous sponsors. A suggested donation of $15 is appreciated and helps to keep the Luminaria Lighting and other support resources free to the general public.
The event will be held rain or shine. Registration is required and can be completed online at https://www.slhn.org/luminaria.
