A Celebration of Lights in Deering Oaks

More than two hundred people gathered to light 1,000 luminaria near the walking bridge in Portland’s Deering Oaks Park on Saturday, October 20th for Hospice of Southern Maine’s Annual Twilight in the Park.

Following a moving program of thoughts on grief, loss and transition, an exquisite rendition of Amazing Grace and the traditional Twilight close of Taps, people gathered at the tent to share recollections of absent friends and loved ones. As the evening light faded , light from 1,000 candles nestled in sand inside paper bags began to glow warmly, each one in honor or in memory of someone who brought light into our lives.
