Candles

“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

We invite you to light a candle at St. Mary’s Church.

Upon entering an Orthodox church it is customary to light candles and offer prayers as a sign of our hope in God’s help that is sent to all who turn to Him in faith. By doing this we enter into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, with the light serving as a visible sign of our faith.

Your chosen candle will be lit in our narthex with prayers by our priest. Please specify if you would like a loved one remembered in prayer.

Please submit your requests by 12:00 pm on Thursday for the weekend. Requests submitted after that time will be fulfilled the following weekend.
