Annual Memorial Candle

 

Purchasing an Annual Memorial Candle in honor of a loved one or for a special intention is a wonderful way to remember your loved one while supporting the parish and beautifying the sacred space of our church. Your memorial candle by our Lady of the Rosary or St. Joseph’s statue will “burn” for one full year in honor of your loved one or your special intention.

A plaque displaying the name of your intention will be mounted in front of each candle.  And will remain for one year.
