Lighting candles has been a significant part of the spiritual life of Catholics. We focus on the great Easter Candle in our church that symbolizes the light of Christ and receive a lighted candle at our baptism to remind us that we are Christ's light in the world. In addition, we often light candles as part of our prayer. The flame symbolizes our longing to be with God and to offer our heart's desires in His presence.
Due to COVID-19, we at the Cathedral have been unable to light any candles for these special desires. On Sundays at 9:50 am, we will live-stream the lighting of candles, we will live-stream the lighting of candles for the particular intentions of our parishioners and visitors. Please fill out the form provided and we will light a candle for you and mention your petition through live-stream.
I thank you for your prayers during these times and continue to pray for all of you.
