“Generosity will save a person from Eternal Death, it will even blot out any sin - because Almsgiving is prayer - it brings graces, it cleanses the soul from guilt and punishment. What good is faith without works, if we desert our fellow man in his need?"
~ St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church

JUNE - Most Sacred Heart of Jesus Novena

The Sanctuary Lamp and Votive Candles
Candles are Your Silent Prayer Before God in the Cloister Chapel. A Eucharistic Holy Hour is made twice daily: during the afternoon and again during the night hours. Six beeswax candles burn before the Blessed Sacrament exposed, as required by Holy Mother Church. In addition, 9-day votive candles burn during each monthly novena, and the Sanctuary Lamp burns 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This lamp indicates the Real Presence of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Please specify which candle(s) you would like to have burn in the Cloister Chapel for your intentions. All candles are blessed and are wax. Your kind offering helps to defray the cost of the candles, for which we are very grateful.
