Candle Ministry

In the lighting of the candles, we remember and truly live the words of Our Lord: “I am the Light of the World”.

In the lighting of the candles, we not only pray, but our prayers become smaller symbols of the One Light of Christ. In burning candles, our prayers rise up to Heaven day and night; prayers for the saint’s intercessions are also common because of their friendship with God in Heaven. Saints are powerful intercessors.

Our candle minitry team replaces the candles that have gone out and also keep the candle stands clean of wax and dust. Our volunteers liken the ministry of taking care of the candles to a form of prayer.
