Seton Votives

Votive Lights

Votive lights are a way for the faithful to remember a loved one or pray for a special intention. The votive lights shine in the Basilica day and night as a sign of the impassioned prayer of those who light them. You may light a votive for a day, a week, a month, or even six months or a year. For semi-annual or annual votives, you have the option of placing an inscription on the votive light.

If you wish to light a votive, please scroll down to see suggested donation amounts and the form, or view our brochure here.

We ask for a donation for each votive light to help with the cost of tending and maintaining the votives. Your gift is fully tax-deductible and is a true blessing to us in our ministry.
