Molokai Floating Lantern Ceremony

Hospice Maui News Release 

Hospice Maui and Guzeiji Soto Mission are pleased to announce the 10th Annual Molokai Floating Lantern Ceremony, an enchanting and heartfelt event set to take place on Saturday, Nov. 4. With the theme “hope is grief’s best music,” this event promises to be an evening of reflection, remembrance, and unity for the Molokai community.

The Floating Lantern Ceremony will be held at the Molokai Community Health Center from 4-6:30 p.m., where the serene waters offer the perfect setting for a memorable and meaningful experience. This event invites attendees to come together to pay tribute to lost loved ones, celebrate life’s beauty, and offer a symbol of hope to those in need.

The evening will feature a series of inspirational activities: lantern decorating, heartfelt speeches, and a moment of silence for personal reflection. At sunset, the lanterns, each carrying a unique message or dedication, will be set afloat on the water, creating a breathtaking sea of light.

The theme “Hope is Grief’s Best Music” reminds us that even in times of sorrow, hope can be a guiding light. The ceremony provides an opportunity for the community to come together, support one another, and find solace in the beauty of Molokai’s natural surroundings.

We invite everyone, regardless of age, background, or belief, to join us in this heartwarming event. The Molokai Floating Lantern Ceremony is a free, family-friendly event. One lantern per family will be provided and food will be available for purchase.

Please note that this event will follow all necessary safety protocols and guidelines to ensure the well-being of all participants.
