LIGHT A CANDLE – PRAYER LIST
We invite you to light a candle at Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church.
Upon entering an Orthodox church it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend.
Candles are lit as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. In practice, when lighting a candle in Church, the faithful usually makes a small offering to the Church.
By lighting a candle and offering a prayer, one enters into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, invisibly warming the soul by the visible light of the candle.
The Fathers will light a candle in our church for you with the names from your prayer list.
STEP 1 – HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PRAYER LIST
Write the name(s) of those on your prayer list for whom you want Father John or Father Evangelos to light a candle and to name in prayers. Email your prayer and request to firstname.lastname@example.org
