Each Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve the Rosary Portico of the Franciscan Monastery is lined with more than 1,000 Luminaria candles:
- visualizing how the light of Christ overcomes darkness
- symbolizing our welcoming of the Holy Family into our hearts, and
- creating a magical place during this special season.
This Christmas, dedicate luminarias in honor of your loved ones at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America. Each name will be inscribed on a luminaria as a prayerful tribute that will illuminate the Monastery’s Rosary Portico from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. The honored also will be remembered in the friars’ daily prayers.
Order before December 16!
