For over 130 years, visitors to the National Shrine have lit candles symbolizing their prayers and intentions. For those unable to visit the National Shrine in-person and due to increased demand, candle offerings are now accepted online for candles to be lit by Shrine Staff for your intention. Your intention(s) will also be included as part of our weekly Perpetual Novena in Honor of St. Joseph, offered every Wednesday at the National Shrine since 1888.
An offering of $6 per candle is requested for candle requests submitted online. Candles (5-day) will be lit within the week submitted or as soon as space allows.
Please contact the National Shrine at 920-337-4312 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The National Shrine of St. Joseph is a ministry of The Premonstratensian Fathers of St. Norbert Abbey, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
The notification message will read: "A candle has been requested to be lit for you and your intentions at the National Shrine of St. Joseph, De Pere, Wisconsin, by an anonymous friend."
