“Be faithful in small things, because it is in them that your strength lies.”

Light a candle

“Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.” John 6:37-40.

At Our Savior Parish at the University of Southern California, votive candles burn brightly night and day as expressions of prayer for any special intentions, or in dedication to a friend or loved one. Each month via Facebook Live, Fr. Richard Sunwoo will light a votive candle for you and your prayer intentions which will burn for five days. So, whether you live close to campus or not, we can now offer to you an opportunity to light a candle inside the church.

All Souls’ Day (The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed), celebrated this year on Monday, November 2, is a day to remember our deceased loved ones and pray together as one church, worldwide. We will have one in-person outdoor Mass at 5:30 p.m. PDT in the USC Caruso Catholic Center Courtyard. Additionally, just like our monthly candle lighting, Fr. Richard will light a votive candle on your behalf, for your loved one, which will burn for five days. The candle lighting live stream will begin at 7:00 p.m. PDT on Facebook.

Please note that All Souls’ Day will replace our Tuesday candle lighting on the week of November 2.
