Even though you are sadly unable to enter the Church physically, we want to help you light a candle inside the parish! If you would like, please send us the number of candles you'd like to light as well as any intention. We will light it for you right away and and pray for your intention as we do so. Offerings would be greatly appreciated in the office mailbox which is just outside the office door (and is checked regularly Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m and 4:00 p.m.) or feel free to do an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org
A Prayer on Lighting a Candle
Lord, may this candle be a light for you to enlighten me in my difficulties and decisions. May it be a fire for you to burn out of me all pride, selfishness and impurity. May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into my heart towards my family, my neighbours and all those who meet me, through the prayers of Mary, Virgin and Mother. I place in your care those I come to remember, especially N. I cannot stay long within your church. In leaving this candle I wish to give you something of myself. Help me to continue my prayer in everything I do this day. Amen.
