Memorials and Decorations


We are pleased to offer a selection of memorials, urns, and flower arrangements to honor your dearly departed.


Candle Memorials

 

We will continue to decorate the chapels in our mausoleums with poinsettias at Christmas and lilies at Easter. All 
families, especially those who have entombments in our Crypts, are invited to purchase a plant in memory of a loved 
one.  The name of the deceased will be listed in a memorial book placed in each of the chapels. 
If you placed an order last year, or ordered flowers for the Chapels in the past, you will receive notification 
through the mail. Otherwise, you may fill out the coupon below and mail it with your check as soon as possible.

According to A Handbook of Catholic Sacramentals, by Ann Ball (Our Sunday Visitor Books), the practice of lighting candles in order to obtain some favor probably has its origins in the custom of burning lights at the tombs of the martyrs in the catacombs. The lights burned as a sign of solidarity with Christians still on earth. Because the lights continually burned as a silent vigil, they became known as vigil lights.

Vigil Lights (from the Latin vigilia, which means "waiting" or "watching") are traditionally accompanied by prayers of attention or waiting. Another common type of candle offering is the votive light. Such an offering is indicative of seeking some favor from the Lord or the saint before which the votive is placed.

Lighting a candle is a way of extending one's prayer and showing solidarity with the person on whose behalf the prayer is offered.

In the lighting of candles we remember and truly live the words of Our Lord: "I am the Light of the World." In the lighting of candles we not only pray, but our prayers become smaller symbols of the One Light of Christ. In burning candles, our prayers rise up to Heaven day and night; prayers for the saint's intercession are also common because of their friendship with God in Heaven. Saints are powerful intercessors. The lighting of candles has been observed since the early time of the martyrs.
