Circle of Lights

May 21 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Circle of Lights is an annual ceremony of remembrance offered by Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care.

Due to the severe weather forecast, we are moving the event indoors to Community Christian Church.

Please park in the multi-level garage at the southeast side of the building – accessible from Main Street. ADA access to the sanctuary is off 46th Street if you wish to drop someone off before parking. We’ll still have the luminaries and you may still request one before the event begins.

Each year there are family members searching for someone from hospice teams who served their family member at the end of their life. There is a sacredness, a richness and an intimate knowing that we have been a witness to and a partner in the care of their loved one. These dedicated caregivers are important to their story. 

This is the 8th year that we will have performance chalk art that is drawn as the stories are shared. Our intergenerational program includes a bagpiper, and this year a band has been added. There is an opportunity for you to have a luminary for one of your loved ones as calligraphers will be standing by to inscribe their names in preparation for this beautiful service.

We hope this will once again be a night that is uplifting and healing as we join together in remembering the special people we love.

Request a Luminary

Plan to come early to enjoy the beauty of the Plaza, perhaps have a bite to eat and browse the shops. New this year: Kendra Scott Gives Back to Kansas City Hospice!
