Lighting a Candle


We can think of a person, we can think of a difficulty we are facing, we can think of a group or our family. 

When we light a candle, our prayer goes on past the time we have stopped praying because the candle continues after we have left.

In St Mary's you are welcome to spend time praying, to light a candle and to leave knowing that just as the candle continues to light the church, so your prayer carries on.
