Greek Orthodox Christians are taught that candles symbolize what is known as the Light of God or the Light of Christ. In the Bible, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). Orthodox Christians that without Jesus, we would be living in darkness. He came to the world to die on the cross to save us from our sins.

In response to the Covid-19 Pandemic and with our Church services being temporarily suspended, St. Sophia Parishioners may ask Father Andrew & Deacon Antonios to light a candle and say a prayer on your behalf by filling out and submitting the below form.

After you submit your candle and prayer requests, you will see a confirmation message and a link to offer a donation to St. Sophia Church.
