About Light a Candle

Light a candle to help some of the world’s poorest families

Just like lighting a candle in church, you are invited to light a candle here to pray for someone who is on your heart.

Each candle is accompanied by a small donation towards CAFOD’s lifesaving work with poor and vulnerable communities. We hope you will take comfort in knowing that your candle is shining a light of hope around the world.

How it works

When lighting your candle you can share the name of the person you're praying for and add a little message or prayer to appear with your candle.

Your candle will stay on the votive stand so you can come back and visit it at any time.

Thank you

With your prayers and donations, families around the world will be given hope for a brighter future.

If you have any questions, please do get in touch by calling us on 0303 303 3030 or emailing remembrance@cafod.org.uk
