“Seven Nights of Lights” is back at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America this Christmas.
Dedicate a luminaria in honor (or memory) of a loved one, or just make a gift to the Garden Guild. This is a beautiful gift and way for you to remember your special intentions. Orders must be received by Dec. 17, 2022, so we can prepare the candles.
Names will be placed on luminarias placed along the Monastery portico or in the Portiuncula Chapel from Dec. 24-31, 2022. They also will be listed on the Luminaria Tribute page on this website and included in the friars’ daily prayers during Christmas week.
Join Us on Christmas Eve for the Blessing and Lighting
Join the friars and Garden Guild members at the Franciscan Monastery (1400 Quincy St. NE, Washington, DC) on Dec. 24, 1 p.m., for the blessing and to help light the luminaria.
And, thank you. Your donation supports the care and preservation of the historic Monastery gardens and the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild’s fresh farm program, critical to helping address hunger in our community.
Thank you for your support and have a Blessed Advent and Christmas.
