Light a Candle

'

"I am the resurrection and the life. 

He who believes in me, even though he is dead, shall live;

and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die." (John 11:25)
 

Remembering Loved Ones

Lighting of votive candles is a traditional way of honoring and remembering our deceased loved ones. If you have visited the Cathedral recently, you may have noticed the absence of votives in the candle racks. Among the precautions taken during the pandemic, candles were removed to guard the safety of our visitors when the Cathedral is open to the public.

During the Advent and Christmas seasons, Msgr. Jameson and St. Matthew’s clergy and staff invite you to share your prayer intentions for the living and the deceased, and allow us to light a votive candle on your behalf. Our priests and staff members will light your candles as your requests are received, the candles will burn in the quiet of the Cathedral, and your loved ones will be remembered in our prayers.
