Light a Candle

      Lighting a vigil candle is a revered custom at Shrines.  Here at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, vigil candles burn in the Chapels throughout the upper and lower Church.  Each burning flame represents the faith of the supplicant and their fervent prayer entrusted to the Blessed Virgin Mary's loving intercession.  We consider it an honor to light a vigil candle for you and pray for your personal intentions (which are kept in confidence).

      You may request a candle to be lit for your intentions in the Basilica’s Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes, a replica of the Grotto in Lourdes where the Blessed Virgin appeared to St Bernadette and spoke the words, "I am the Immaculate Conception."  Please click here to light a candle to remember my intention at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception for me.
