Votive Candles

Votive Candles

At the Grotto on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, hundreds of votive candles burn brightly night and day as expressions of prayer for special intentions.

The living flame of each candle is a beautiful symbol of both prayer and of hope. At your request, the Congregation of Holy Cross will light a weekly votive candle at the Grotto for your intentions. Your candle will remain lit for that entire week.

The offering for a votive candle is entirely up to you. We recognize many of our benefactors are on fixed income, yet some people still want some idea of what to give. The customary donation is $2 per votive, but you can donate more or less.

Please fill out the online form below to receive your candle.

If you would like to mail in your offering, please call us at 574.631.6022 or contact us online and we can mail you a form. If you have any questions or concerns while making your donation online, please also feel free to contact us.
