Let Us Burn One for Your Intentions
For the forty days from Christmas night to Candlemas on February 2, the focal point for the decoration of a Catholic church is the Christmas crib.
We put up not one, but two Nativity scenes in St. Gertrude the Great Church every year for this joyous season, one in the sanctuary and another behind the altar in a side chapel where daily Masses are regularly offered. (See photo)
During the Christmas season, we can burn a seven-day candle before the Christmas crib for your intentions.
The customary offering is $7 per candle.
