Devotional Candles

Blue Votive Candles

Our Prayers Rise Like Incense

A tradition in many Roman Catholic churches is to burn candles as a way to offer our prayers for others.

At Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and St. Leo parishes, many such devotional candles are offered.  As the candle continues to burn before the Blessed Sacrament, Image of the Sacred Heart, or even before one of our patron saints, your prayers are continually lifted to God.



Lighting a candle

Opportunities for parishioners to light candles are offered at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, such as the $1.00 votive   candles in the rear of the church nave or the large $3.00 votives offered on the rack near the statue of Our Lady of Grace.

For the other candles, such as the Sanctuary Lamps at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and St. Leo Church, the Sanctuary Lamps on either side of the Blessed Sacrament in the Most Merciful Heart of Jesus Adoration Chapel, or the candle which burns near the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the sanctuary can be reserved by contacting the office.  The cost is $5.oo per candle.
