Luminaria at the Labyrinth

Sometimes the holidays can be hard.
We understand this, and we are here for you. We have all lost people who were near and dear to us, people that we remember fondly during this special time of year.
Let’s try something new together. This year, you are invited to remember your loved ones in a very special way. Come and gather together with us and light a luminary in remembrance of those you wish to honor. You will be able to remember your loved ones in a variety of ways, from lighting luminaries and walking the Labyrinth, to engaging in one-on-one conversation and prayer at one of the semi-private stations especially set up for you. This event is free to all
and will include warm beverages and snacks, as well 
as instructions on how to use the Labyrinth.
The Light will shine in the darkness, and the darkness will not overcome it.
When:  Sunday, November 5th, 5-6 pm
Where:  From US 131 in downtown Mancelona:
Turn east on State street. Go down three
blocks and turn right on Washington. In
two blocks you will come to Cran Park.
The labyrinth is in the park on the corner
of S. Washington and E. Michigan.
