Candles of Love on Nov. 2:
A Virtual Prayer Service
The Candles of Love liturgy has become a beautiful tradition that the School Sisters of St. Francis hold each autumn, usually on the Feast of All Saints. When our community gathers, St. Joseph Chapel is filled with candlelight as we commemorate our family members and friends, as well as benefactors of our congregation who have died during the past year.
This year, on Monday, November 2, we welcome you to join us for a virtual prayer service from our sacred space of St. Joseph Chapel, where we will share Candles of Love on Facebook Live. Because we are unable to invite guests into our chapel due to COVID-19 precautions, we will stream the service so our friends around the world may watch from wherever they are.
We also invite and encourage you to share with us the names of loved ones for whom you would like us to pray. Our sisters will pray for your intentions that evening and throughout the month of November at Masses and in daily prayers.
Please visit our special Candles of Love web page for complete details and to send us your prayer intentions using the online form.
Please wait while we gather your results.
Lay associates share the School Sisters of St. Francis’ commitment to spiritual growth, gospel values, and social impact.
We invite you to share your prayer intentions with us.
