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.
“Renewed Passion”….. is the theme of this year’s Bishop’s Annual Appeal that begins now.
The BAA is now underway. There are so many way to be a part of the ministries that support vocation to the priesthood, religious education and spiritual formation, families, young adults and our youth. However, all the time and talents that re graciously offered to serve the needs must be financially supported. Thank you for considering a monetary gift for this year’s appeal. No gift is too small.
Brochures are also available at the main church entrance with detailed information and if you wish to use to make your donation or you can donate online at www.dioceseoffresno.org/baa.
Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration.
