Honor Favorite Saints with a Candle

Lighting a votive candle before shrine or image honoring Our Lord, Our Lady or a saint is a venerable Catholic tradition symbolizing the desire to present our prayer in church day and night.

St. Gertrude the Great Church contains a vast array of beautiful shrines, statues and paintings in the altar reredos, the sanctuary, the votive altars, the side chapel and the nave. 

We can burn a 7-day votive candle at one of these shrines for your intentions.

The customary offering is $7 per votive candle.
