Holy Friday Luminaria

Join Saint Barbara Church this year as we prayerfully continue the tradition of Holy Friday Luminaria.

Each parishioner who is able to participate is given the opportunity to place the name of a loved one, living or deceased, on a Luminaria that will be lit on Holy Friday evening. These Luminaria will be placed outside on the pathway of the procession on Holy Friday evening.

A Luminaria (a crisp white bag with votive candle lit inside, each bag will be inscribed with the name of the person you would like to honor, remember, or pray for) and displayed outside in a grouping as a reflection and remembrance of those whom we love and cherish.

Each of us, created in the image and likeness of God, is reflected in the Light Of Christ.
