Please join us Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at Ravenscroft School as we light luminaries in remembrance and celebration of those we love who have died.
Jones Fine Arts Building

Raleigh, NC 27615
Directions to Ravenscroft School.
Luminaries with your commemorative messages will light up the night, and will be available for viewing at 6:00 pm, followed by the indoor service (Jones Fine Arts Building) from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Luminaries and commemorative placards are available by completing this online form or printing this form to complete and mail to us.
What if there is inclement weather?
This is a rain or shine event. The luminaries will be placed outside, and the service itself will be indoors in the auditorium. We encourage you to consult the weather forecast and dress accordingly.
Will there be a place to sit if I need to take a break?
Yes. There is limited seating outside, but you will be welcome to come to the auditorium for the service.
I already registered but now have additional people who would like to attend. Is that OK?
Yes. This is a community event and we welcome all participants.
Can I bring my children to this event?
Yes! Children and teenagers are invited and encouraged to participate. They can also order luminaries in memory of those who have died. A special placard will be made for children who order luminaries.
Do I have to order a luminary to attend?
No. You do not have to order a luminary. Luminaries can be ordered as a way of recognizing a person who has died, but you are not required to order a luminary to participate.
How can I order a luminary?
Orders can be made online (luminary order), or a paper order form can be downloaded and printed. Paper order forms can be mailed to:
c/o Laura Bradbury
250 Hospice Circle
Raleigh, NC 27607
There is a suggested, but optional donation of $25 for each luminary order. The deadline for submitting orders is December 4, 2018.
I made a donation to Transitions LifeCare online or at another event. Does this mean my loved one will have a luminary at this event?
No. In order to have a luminary at this event lit in memory of someone, you must fill out and submit either the online or paper order form.
I want to order a luminary, but I can’t attend on December 6. How will I get my commemorative placard?
Commemorative placards will be available for pick up at Transitions GriefCare until February 1, 2019. You or someone else can pick them up at the Grief Center before that date.
