Hospice of Southern Maine brings back this in-person, annual community remembrance event on Saturday, September 24 at 6:00 pm. As dusk falls over Deering Oaks Park in Portland, imagine thousands of luminarias glowing warmly, each light representing someone who has brought love and light into our lives.

Whether your loss was recent or many years ago, anyone in the community is encouraged to attend. Sharing the experience with others can be a very healing and transformative experience. After luminarias are lit at 6:00, there will be a short program with music.

Personalized luminarias may be ordered online at or by mail or phone for $10 each. Order by September 22nd for Hospice of Southern Maine to place and light them at the event, or order at the walk-in table on the night of the event.

Please visit our website today to order your luminaria(s) and sign up –
