Candles of Love 2023


Candles of Love ... Our gift to you!

Wednesday, November 1, 2023 - Feast of All Saints
6:30 p.m. Central Time
Our Candles of Love liturgy will also be live streamed from our historic St. Joseph Chapel

Watch it live on Ustream.

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. 

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.

Ways to pray with us for Candles of Love…

Our sisters invite you to our sacred space of St. Joseph Chapel for the Candles of Love! We will stream this liturgy live on Ustream. Ustream also allows our friends around the world to watch Candles of Love from wherever they are. A recording will be archived for all to watch.

Light a candle in remembrance of loved ones...

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 Mass. Our sisters are 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.

If you will be watching Candles of Love on Ustream, pray along with us using the order of worship created especially for this liturgy.

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