4. One Sanctuary Lamp Still Available
As the church is being rewired the three red sanctuary lamps from the chancel have been taken down. Traditionally one lamp is left burning day and night to signify the presence of the Reserved Sacrament in the chapel, and we will continue to do that with the aumbry candle. If you would like to own one of the lamps, for a donation, please let us know by contacting the church office: email@example.com
UPDATE: One lamp is still available.

If you are looking for ways to be healthy, avoid potentially busy greenhouses, and become more self-reliant, you can order garden-ready plants. They cost $4 each and will be shipped to your home directly on the date of your choosing anywhere in Ontario or Quebec. 10% of your purchase will help AURA continue to support refugees.
