Candles at Our Lady’s Altar at St Marys Church
Candles at Our Lady’s Altar
We are a bit concerned that the heat intensity
generated by the candles on Our Lady’s Altar
may have an adverse effect on the Holy
Family Painting hanging directly above the
In order to minimize the danger, we
would ask that candles be placed on either
candelabra beside the altar and only in case
of necessity that candles would be placed
only on the front part of the altar table.
Please do not place any candles above the
altar table or near the tabernacle door. This
will greatly reduce the danger of any
long - term deterioration of the painting.
