New Altar Candlesticks (Updated 3.13.19)

by Jeremy Kiolbassa, Director of Music & Liturgy

A special thank you to all those that have donated to this project! We are getting close to having it fully funded. Our craftsman is hard at work and we should have a prototype of the new candlesticks by sometime next weekend. We have also ordered the new candles to be mounted to the candlesticks. They are refillable oil candles, similar to those currently on the altar, but significantly larger.

I first wrote about this project several weeks ago, you can view that article here. We are well on our way to having this project completely funded. Here is a breakdown of the costs/donations to date:

Paschal Candle Stand:                   $1,000

6 Floor-standing Altar Candles:   $3,000

Funds raised to date (as of 3/13): -$2,880.50

Remaining Goal:                             $1,119.50

If you have not yet made a donation, there are two ways to contribute:

1) Purchase a hymnal dedication by clicking here or filling out the form in the bulletin. All funds from hymnal dedications will go toward this project.

2) Make an outright donation by clicking here, or by dropping an envelope in the collection basket labeled “candlestick fundraiser”.

We are aiming to have this project completed by April 20th, Easter Sunday. Any funds raised beyond our goal will be set aside for other liturgical improvements. For questions, contact Jeremy Kiolbassa, Director of Music & Liturgy.
