Candles have been part of our expression of faith from ancient times. The presence of the light reminds us of Jesus' coming into our world and into our lives. Jesus said: "I am the light of the world" (John 8:12).
When we light candles, we are reminding ourselves and the people that God is with us. Candles are lit at baptism, wedding, thanksgiving, death, funeral, and anniversary. Living with the memories of the loss of a loved one is a test of our faith and at the same time an occasion to profess more clearly that
God is present even in our loss and Jesus continues to be the light of the world.
We have been blessed to have votive lights and memorial candles installed by the side altars of the Church. This gives us an opportunity to bring our loved ones to the altar, remember them fondly and to pray for them. You are invited to light a Memorial Candle to honor your loved ones.
The candle will be lit for a month, (as many months as you prefer) or a year from the date of your request. A small plaque displaying the name you requested will be mounted below the candle.
The monthly offering for a candle is $30.00 which will benefit the ministries of the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes. To light your candle, please complete the form below and return to the parish office with your offering or call the parish office at your convenience.
