Vigil Lights

One of the traditions dear to our hearts is lighting candles at Church. Candles are reminders that Jesus is the Light of the World. In the Gospel of Luke, Simeon calls Jesus “a light of revelation to the Gentiles”. Here at the Basilica thousands of candles are lit every week when prayer requests are brought to the intercession of Our Blessed Virgen de San Juan del Valle. You can make a prayer request online, and also ask for a candle to be lit. Each candle is sold for $3.25, and when you purchase two or more they are sold for $2.50 a piece.

If you would like us to light a candle for you every week of the year we ask for a donation of $130.00, and for a candle to be lit once a month for a whole year the total donation is $30.00. Please make sure to include a prayer request for an entire year, or one prayer request per month.
