The Keepers Of The Light - Daytime Shifts


The Gatherers head out after the sun returns, and retrieve the lanterns so they can be prepared for another night's duty. These essential persons also keep our light shining bright by cleaning the glass of the lanterns.


These people are responsible for filling and prepping the lanterns for their procession out into the night, so that we might light the way of others.


Responsible for the retrieval and removal of the infrastructure that the Lamplighters bring to our city. They retrieve the lantern poles, dismantle the chapel, and return the instruments of the sun back into the void.

The Nightly Procession - Evening Shifts


They bear the burden of our dutiful work by carrying the lanterns. Volunteers for this shift must be able to carry 25 pounds of lanterns for up to 30 minutes. 

The Lifters

The Lifters hang our lights to shine into the darkness.

The Guide 

is responsible for organizing teams during the nightly procession, checking volunteers in, helping with robes, and the distribution of procession swag.
