Want to light a candle for someone you love?
America’s most famous cathedral now lets you do that from the convenient comfort of your laptop:
Each day, visitors from all over the world come to St. Patrick’s Cathedral to light a candle as an act of prayer.
We invite you to participate in our community of faith by lighting a virtual prayer candle online.
The contribution that accompanies the virtual prayer candle helps to maintain a safe and holy environment for the millions of people who visit the Cathedral every year.
One large candle is lit at St. Patrick’s Cathedral to symbolize and commemorate all the virtual candles requested from our community of faith on the Internet.
The candle is pictured above (though it looks to me suspiciously like the Paschal Candle.)
Suggested donation: $5. Major credit cards are accepted. Check it out.
