Due to concerns for the health of attendees, participants, volunteers, and staff during the outbreak of COVID-19, the Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaiʻi 2020 ceremony has been canceled. In lieu of this year’s ceremony, an alternative virtual ceremony is being planned and will take place on May 25, 2020. Details will be announced shortly. Your messages of remembrance and commitment to positive action will be included in this observance.

We naturally long to connect with and express love and gratitude to those we miss. Our thoughts, prayers, and commitment to actions that make a positive difference in the present and future will be gathered in a ceremony on May 25, 2020. May we have peace of mind and heart through feeling the interconnectedness of past, present, and future.
