Lamps of the Chapels and Shrines

The majority of the side chapels within the Shrine Church contain hanging lamps. Small votive lamps burn by individual shrines (images.) There are also hanging lamps on the nave pillars above the two ikons. These lamps all bear an intercession. Dedications for these lamps and candles are displayed on a plaque on the outside wall of the Holy House. Minimum annual donation - from 150 - 200 depending on location and daily/weekly change.

Lamps within the Sepulchre

Two candles burn perpetually within the Sepulchre in the Shrine gardens. A nearby plaque bears the dedications. Minimum annual donation - 75; these lamps are currently dedicated

Lamps within the Barn

There are two perpetual candles in the Barn - a restored stone barn close to the refectory, now used as a space for quiet, meditation and services such as Night Prayer. One candle burns by the great ikon and the other by an image of Our Lady of Walsingham. A nearby plaque bears the dedications. Minimum annual donation - 100; these lamps are currently dedicated.
