Prayer Request / Virtual Candle

“I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12

Welcome to our virtual candles and contribution tray. We encourage you to submit the names of the living and the departed with your candle donation so that the clergy can pray for them during the divine worship services.

We thank you for participating. Your support helps us minister to our members and to those in need in our community. Let’s stay connected even when we’re apart.


  • We encourage everyone to submit names of loved ones, both living and departed, Orthodox and non-Orthodox to be commemorated during the Divine Liturgy each week. There are separate sheets for the living and for the departed.

    For Orthodox Christians, please write the baptismal/chrismation name. If the person is not baptized or christmated in the Orthodox Church, please write their name in its most formal version. The following are examples of names written in format that is not clear as to their Christian origin with clearer version in parentheses: Anna (Anna or Anastasia), Tom (Thomas, Anastasios, Athanasios), Sam (Samuel, Soterios), Stella (Stamata, Styliane).

    Other names that may or may not be Orthodox and their more formal version include: Tony (Anthony),Kim (Kimberly, Dick (Richard), Pat (Patricia, Panayiota). You may submit their commonly called name along with their formal Christian name. Thank you!
