Sanctuary Candle Request

One of the Church's earliest traditions is to burn candles to offer prayers to God. The Sanctuary Candle is the red candle in the Tabernacle in the Church or in the Chapel, and the blue votive candle in honor of Mary next to the Our Lady of Good Counsel statue in the Chapel.

They are available on a weekly basis starting on a Sunday.

For a donation of $25, you have the opportunity to have the candle burn for a week in memory of a deceased loved one, for a celebration or for a special intention.

If you have questions, please contact Maria Romero,, 703.896.7419.
