Lighting candles in church is part of our tradition of prayer. We light candles to remind us that, even though we have left the church and might forget about the things we have prayed for, the intentions are still held close to the heart of Mary and the saints.
If you would like the lamp in the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary or the Chapel of St Teresa to burn for a particular intention (and ask the prayers of others) you can 'sponsor' the lamp for seven days. You can suggest a particular week (beginning on Sunday) or the intention will appear in the order they are received.
When you press submit you will be taken to a page to offer a £5 donation.
