Christ said, “I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12) Jesus Christ is that light. He is the light that shines for us in the midst this world of darkness. And anyone who follows Him needs not fear that darkness because we know that Christ will always shine for us, leading us in the Way to the Father. Each time we light a candle, we are called to remember that it is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the True Light and that He and only He will grant us True Life.
The Sanctuary Lamps in our Church and Divine Mercy Adoration Chapel burn every week to remind us of the sacramental presence of Jesus Christ. The Altar Candles in the Church and Adoration Chapel also serve as a reminder of Christ our light and of our call to pray to God without ceasing.
Parishioners may request the Sanctuary Lamps and Altar Candles (in both the Church and Adoration Chapel) burn for one week in memory or in honor of a loved one. Intentions will be published in the weekly bulletin. The customary donation is $10.00 per intention.
Please contact the Parish Office to schedule a Votive Memorial.
