Participants are invited to share a moment of personal peace to acknowledge and honor the challenges faced during the pandemic, while ceremonially placing luminary lanterns they decorated within a holiday light display during a poignant program with inspirational music, readings, and speakers.
“Our staff members are resilient, though they may carry invisible burdens; each day they continue to be there to care for our patients and families,” says Rand O’Leary, MSA, FACHE, senior vice president, Northern Light Health and president, Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. “We hope this event will bring some light to us all as we near the shortest day of year.”

The event will conclude with a memorial tree lighting in honor of those we’ve lost, followed by uplifting music, hot cocoa, and socially distanced mingling.

All participants will remain masked during the event, which will be held outside on the Medical Center’s State Street campus.
