Following a brief ceremony, the group retraced its steps back to the University of the Arts.

The Lumenignisist religion has only one annual celebration, held in springtime, consisting of a parade of three shines, each carried by four devotees.  The shrines are made of steel, and inspired by Bard’s recent visit to Japan.
