Wednesday marks the second anniversary of the late football coach's passing.
The vigil will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Suzanne Pohland Paterno Catholic Student Faith Center on Park Avenue in State College.
Organizers say luminaries will be lit in front of the center with messages and quotes to honor Paterno and will be a time for the community to heal.
The Paterno family is asking folks to make donations to THON in Joe Paterno's name in lieu of flowers.
