LA Catholics to ‘unite with light’ amid COVID-19 pandemic

Although people are not allowed to gather physically during the “shelter in place” mandate to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Archdiocese of Los Angeles is inviting Catholics to light candles as a symbolic show of community and hope on April 1 at 7 p.m.

Catholics are asked to place a candle outside their home, or in their windows, to “show their trust in the Lord.” The candle will be a symbol of Christ’s light in the world, said the archdiocese, and in a special way will honor the healthcare workers and medical professionals who are fighting on the front lines of the pandemic.
