Candles of Love 2021


Candles of Love ... Our gift to you!

Our sisters offer you this Candles of Love gift of prayer in gratitude for your friendship and support of our mission.  It is through your generous partnership that we are able to be a source of new life, new meaning, and new hope for the poor and disadvantaged.

Monday, November 1, 2021, Feast of All Saints
6:30 p.m. (CDT)
Our Candles of Love liturgy will be available online from St. Joseph Chapel

Watch it live on our Facebook page:

Each year at Candles of Love, usually held on the Feast of All Saints, the School Sisters of St. Francis light candles to commemorate family and friends, as well as benefactors of our community, who have died during the past year. 

We are very grateful for the positive response we received to last year's online streaming of Candles of Love!  Our virtual community of prayer included over 1,100 people.  This November, we again invite you to join us for a Candles of Love liturgy on Facebook Live.  While at this time, only our sisters and associates have admittance to our St. Joseph Chapel, please join us online for Candles of Love. As we did last year, we will stream this liturgy live so our friends around the world may watch from wherever they are.  You do not need to have a Facebook account to watch – it is free for everyone.  The liturgy will also be archived so you may watch it again at a later time on our Ustream channel.

Ways to pray with us for Candles of Love…

Please light our virtual candle on this page, which reminds us of the Divine Light and the promise of hope for those we hold closest in our hearts.  After lighting the candle, you may use the online intention form (beneath the candle) to send your prayer request to us. Your intentions will be added to the baskets of prayers that will be placed in the sisters’ Adoration Chapel during Candles of Love.  Our sisters will be honored to pray for your petitions that evening and throughout the month of November at Masses and in daily prayers. This opportunity is open to all people of all faith traditions.

In the coming weeks, the order of worship for Candles of Love will be available on this page.

Please email if you would like more information or have questions. We look forward to praying with you on November 1!
