Light a Candle

Light a Candle for thoughts and intentions

Each day, many people on their way to or from work or perhaps just shopping in Dublin City, drop in to Whitefriar Street Church to light a candle for their own thoughts or intentions, or perhaps for a friend or relative who are going through a difficult time.

At any hour of the day, there is always a soft glow of candlelight around the church. Perhaps, if you have visited the church, or have a devotion to a particular saint, you might like to light a candle in our church, but are unable to do so. No problem – we will do it for you. Simply fill in the form below and we will light a candle for your intentions.

There is no charge for this service. However if you would like to make an offering towards the work and upkeep of Whitefriar Street Church at this time, we would be most grateful for any donation that you would like to make.
