Lamb Arts, a Hopewell-based non-profit organization, is partnering with OC3 to launch their One City, One Hope Prayer Candle project. Churches across Hopewell are being asked to participate in this project with the intention of building unity and hope across our community.


At this point, we are asking interested church leaders to submit this form by May 10 to express their willingness to participate and begin coordination for the pick-up of an initial candle. Participating church leaders are asked to say a blessing of unity and hope for our community over the initial candle and then return it to our downtown location (210 N 2nd Ave) by June 3.


Once all candles are collected Lamb Arts will then melt the blessed candles into one, symbolically representing our shared intentions. Lamb Arts will then distribute this community wax into hundreds of One City, One Hope prayer candles that will be available for participation by all at upcoming events.


We will be asking parishioners and churches to help offset Lamb Arts' cost of this project by offering these candles at a suggested donation/cost of $7 each.


Please feel free to email if you have any questions about this project.
