The Lumen Christi Society
Those giving levels indicated with an asterisk (*) below are recognized as Lumen Christi Society Members. These are women and men whose examples of stewardship stand as a shining example before Christ. At the Easter Vigil Mass, after the new fire has been blessed outside the church, the Lumen Christi is the candle that brings light from the new fire of Christ to the Paschal Candle. Christ calls us to be the light of the world:
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” Mt 5:14-16
