Light an Advent Vigil Light
Please send your intention below...
We begin the new year in the Church with the season of Advent—a season of hope. Advent is a time to help us prepare for Christmas, when we celebrate the fulfillment of our longing for the Savior with the birth of Jesus Christ. Please fill in your special intention for Advent below and it will be taken to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude.
You will be given the opportunity to send a voluntary gift to the Shrine of St. Jude on the next page.
