We are grateful to those who have dedicated luminarias to be placed at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land this Christmas season to honor and remember loved ones.
We invite you to visit our tribute page and to reflect and pray for those listed. 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!
