Welcome the Holy Family into your heart and prayers by dedicating luminarias in honor of your loved ones at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land.

Each name will be inscribed on a luminaria, part of a prayerful tribute illuminating the Rosary Portico from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. Your loved ones also will be remembered in the friars’ daily prayers.

The donation is $10/luminaria. Orders are due by Dec. 14, 2016. Download the order form here.
