New Candle holder    

Thanks to a generous donor, we now have a new candle (votive) stand. It provides an opportunity to light a candle and say a prayer. Please do make use of it if you wish.

candle holderLighting a candle is a prayer:
When we have gone, it stays alight,
kindling in the hearts and minds of others,
the prayers we have already offered for
them and for others, the sad, the sick,
the suffering and prayer of thankfulness too.

Lighting a candle is a parable:
Burning itself out, it gives light to others
Christ gave himself for others
He calls us to give ourselves

Lighting a candle is a symbol:
Of love and hope
Of light and warmth
Our world needs them all.
