Sanctuary Candle


The Sanctuary Candle hangs to the right of the Altar and burns continually seven days a week, 363 days a year.  On Good Friday and Holy Saturday, however, the candle is extinguished as we remember the Death and Burial of our Saviour.


This special candle signifies the Eternal Presence of Christ in the Holy Communion of His Body and Blood, reserved in the Aumbry for distribution to the sick and shut-ins.


You may arrange to have the Sanctuary Candle burn in memory of a loved one by contacting the Church Office (855-5209).  The memorial will be placed in the Church bulletin as follows:


“The Sanctuary Candle burns this week to the Glory of God and in loving memory of……..”I


The suggested donation to cover the cost of the Sanctuary Candle is $10.00.
