What are Memorial Candles?
We offer yearly votive candles for memorial use. The candles are lit in the Candle Chapel located in base of Bell Tower.
Chapel is aglow with nearly 1000 candles, 800 of which are memorials with inscription plates.
Placing a Votive Light at the Shrine in honor of Our Lady is a demonstration of your faith and confidence in the intercession of Our Lady of Czestochowa.
As you go about your daily tasks the flame of your Votive Light constantly declares your prayerful petitions and prayers of thanksgiving.
Memorial Candle – The ritual of lighting a candle in remembrance
The ritual of lighting a candle to pay tribute to a life ‘passed’. Keeping a light burning in remembrance signifies that the memory still lives on and burns bright. It is a ritual that promotes reflection and signifies remembrance.
