1,000 candles lighted up at Holy Sacrifice Parish in UP for the souls of departed loved ones

Bearing the names of departed loved ones, a thousand (1,000) candles were lit on Monday, All Saints’ Day lining around the altar of the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice in the University of the Philippines-Diliman Campus in Quezon City on November 1, 2021.

The lighting of candles and offering flowers to honor departed loved ones is an age-old tradition practiced among Christians during All Saints’ Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2).
