Honor a Favorite Saint by Burning a Votive Candle

We have 45 images or shrines to choose from.

For info, click here.

In addition to being the month of the Holy Souls, November is also the month of All Saints, and a good time to honor your favorite saints. Lighting a votive candle before a 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 7-day votive candles at these shrines for your intentions. The customary offering is $7 per votive candle.
