“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12


In the Catholic church, light has always had a special significance because it represents Christ. We know that Jesus called himself the Light of the world. Additionally, St. John’s Gospel connects Christ with the imagery of light in John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

In our churches today, we light candles before a statue or sacred image of our Lord or a saint. The light signifies our prayer, which is offered in faith, entering the light of God. It also shows reverence and our desire to remain present in prayer even as we continue our day.

Candles are lit for prayer intentions. To "light a candle for someone" indicates one's intention to say a prayer for another person, and the candle symbolizes that prayer.

Lighting a candle for someone -living or deceased- is a way to both extend your prayers and show solidarity with the person the prayer is being made on behalf of. We also believe in the importance of our prayers for those who have died, asking the Lord to forgive any sins they may have committed due to human frailty, but it is also a great way to keep their memory alive as we honor who they were and the good they did. The faithful also light candles as a sign of gratitude to God for answered prayers.

Here at Our Lady of the Lakes we want to offer you this opportunity to pray for all those intentions with the Perpetual Candles located in our vestibule. These candles can be lit for:

  • The health of someone
  • In memory of someone who has passed away
  • In thanksgiving for a grace or favor granted to you
  • The intentions of someone dear to you (living)

Many times, we ask ourselves, “What can I do to help change the World?” One thing you can do is help children to know and love the Lord. You do not need a degree in Theology to help them learn about God.

All you need is to share your Love for God and want to serve others to grow yourself personally and spiritually in the process of teaching the Word of God. This is an exclusive opportunity to help our parish’s children and adults who are seeking to learn about God.

Become a Volunteer


Muchas veces nos preguntamos: "¿Qué puedo hacer para ayudar a cambiar el mundo?" Una cosa que puedes hacer es ayudar a los niños a conocer y amar a Dios. Usted no necesita un título en teología para ayudarles a aprender acerca de Dios.

Todo lo que necesita es compartir su amor por Dios y querer servir a los demás para el crecimiento personal y espiritual de los estudiantes en su proceso de aprender de la Palabra de Dios. Esta es una oportunidad única para usted ayudar a los niños y adultos de nuestra parroquia que están ansiosos de conocer a Dios.

Together we are the Church

2021 ABCD Goal $295,999.00. We have $ 204,520.00 in pledges. We have received $ 87,848.82 in payments. Our Pledge Balance is $ 116,671.18. We need $91,479.00 more in pledges to reach our goal.

We still need your support more than ever now! If you have not donated to ABCD 2021, you still can.

Your gift to the ABCD allows the Archdiocese of Miami to help those in need just as Christ calls us to mirror the love of Christ by putting your faith into action and making a gift of hope today.

You can do so today by visiting:

You Make A Difference! Your Support Is Greatly Appreciated! Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Every year our parish contributes to the Archbishop Charities and Development Drive (ABCD), as does every parish in Miami These contributions are tremendously important. They are used, among other things to fund the seminaries that train our priests, and to support parochial schools in low-income neighborhoods, like St. Mary’s in Little Haiti. The money we all contribute is used to take care of the elderly indigent, to help poor couples welcome their children into the world instead of aborting them, and to feed and clothe the mentally ill who sadly live on the sidewalks of our downtown.

In short, the great works of charity of the Catholic Church, which includes spiritual formation in the faith, is made possible in Miami by the ABCD.

We are asking that EVERY family at Our Lady of The Lakes Church, contribute to this important mission. It is simply our duty as Catholics and as role models for our children and the wider community. There is no reason why we cannot achieve 100% participation.

Please take a moment to consider how much you can pledge this very day. It can be arranged to be paid monthly if that works better for your family. What is important is to commit to the charity that is the hallmark of the honorable Christian.
