Lamps of the Holy House

6

The Shrine welcomes pilgrims and visitors to have remembered in prayer people and places by maintaining a lamp in the Shrine.  There are a variety of lamps available for an annual donation commensurate with the position and size of the lamp.  The lamps categories are:

Shelf Lamps 

We have a number of small votive lamps that stand in rows on shelves on both the inside and outside walls of the Holy House. Each lamp bears a shield asking for the prayers of Our Lady and pilgrims for a particular intention. Minimum annual donation - £40. (There are a number of these lamps available)

Hanging Lamps within the Holy House 

We have 15 hanging lamps within the Holy House each bear an intercession. A plaque on the outside wall of the Holy House display the dedications. Minimum annual donation - £250. (There are none available at the moment)

Lamps of the Chapels and Shrines 

Many of our side chapels within the Shrine Church contain hanging lamps and 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. (There are currently three shrine/hanging lamps available in the Shrine Church)

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 (There are currently no lamps available)
