We are grateful to those who have dedicated luminarias this Christmas season to loved ones and invite you to visit our tribute page for this year’s luminaria. Each person will be remembered in the prayers of the Friars from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve.
The Blessing and Lighting of the Luminaria is Christmas Eve, 1 p.m., at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land, 1400 Quincy St. NE, Washington, DC 20017. The lanterns will remain lighted through New Year’s Eve. Please visit, enjoy the beauty of the lights at this historic monastery, and spend time in prayer and thanksgiving. Merry Christmas!
