Galway, Ireland – 7 January 2016

We have been using the St. Killians shrine candles at Galway Cathedral for the past five years. We are delighted with the system. Our parishioners, worshipers and visitors love the candles. Our staff find the system easy to manage, clean and safe. Overall the St. Killians candles have greatly enhanced our building, reduced candle smoke and increased our candle revenue.

The service and care provided by the company is excellent. At times of the year when we require additional candle stands they are always made available for which we are very grateful.

I have no hesitation in recommending the St. Killians system and I look forward to working with the company in the future.

With every good wish,
Your sincerely,
Canon Peter Rabbitte PP, VF

Cobh, Ireland – 22 January 2016

Since their introduction in November 2014 the candle shrines have been received very well by parishioners and visitors alike. The lit candles in the shrines throughout the Cathedral add greatly to the prayerful atmosphere as visitors enter. Each year we have over 50,000 visitors from all over the world.

As Cobh was a major port and port and point of departure for many Irish people in the past, it means a lot to visitors to light a candle in memory of deceased family members who emigrated from Cobh, having gone to Mass for the last time in Ireland in this church before departure to an uncertain future. For many of them they would never return. The ritual of lighting a candle takes on a special poignancy for this reason.

I am very pleased with the professionalism and courtesy of your staff at all times, therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending St. Killians Candles.

I wish to add that the revenue from the candles helps greatly in maintenance and upkeep of the Cathedral.

With every good wish,
Kind Regards,
Fr. John McCarthy, Administrator

Reference from Knock Shrine

Knock, Ireland – 13 January 2016

Knock Shrine has recently started using the St. Killians Candle System in the various churches throughout our complex. We are extremely satisfied with the services of St. Killians Candles and the personal attention given to the design of the candelabrum ensuring its suitability for each location.

Due to the success of the initial installations and our confidence in their safety, we made the decision to install the St. Killians Candle System into our newly refurbished Basilica for the first time. This has proven to be great success and we are extremely happy with our decision. We will continue to use St. Killians Candle System in the future and would highly recommend them to any place of worship.

Yours sincerely,
Fr. Richard Gibbons, P.P.
Rector of Knock Shrine

New York, USA – May 21, 2015

St. Paul’s Chapel started using the St. Killians Candle Burning System in June 2014. With over a million visitors annually, we found the soot and glass breakage made it difficult to maintain our traditional votive candle system. Using St. Killians resolved these problems completely, it has been remarkably efficient, functional and labor saving.

With the addition of a site-specific custom case, for aesthetic considerations, this installation adds significantly to the St. Paul’s experience. The St. Killians representatives have been wonderful to work with – responsive, attentive and thorough. We recommend them without hesitation.

With Regards,
The Rev. Daniel Simons
Director of liturgy, Hospitality and Pilgrimage

New York, USA – April 27, 2015

Dear St. Killians Candles:

Over the past few years, we made the decision to transition from a previous candle system to that of St. Killians. We have never been happier with the decision.

Each year we have over 5 million visitors and it is a great tradition “to light a candle at St. Patrick’s” when people visit. We needed peace of mind that we are using a safe and clean method for lighting those candles. Damage from candle smoke is virtually a thing of the past since our transferring solely to the St. Killians system.

This system has contributed greatly towards our church revenues and has performed beyond our expectations since day one.

St. Killians system is excellent, as is their backup service and maintenance. Our relationship with this company is exceptional and we wish them continued success. We highly recommend them to any place of worship.

Adelaide, Australia – April 2017

We in the Adelaide Cathedral Parish are very pleased to be the first in the southern hemisphere to install the St. Killians Candle Burning System within St Francis Xavier Cathedral.

Due to safety and practicality concerns with our previous candle racks, we researched alternative solutions that provided us with peace of mind and a reduction in maintenance. Our research led us to St Killians. The St Killians website provided us with detailed videos and descriptions so we were sure it was the right option prior to purchase.

In November 2016 our three candelabras arrived with a pallet of candles – they now form a centrepiece in our Cathedral. Our total experience with the St Killians company has been easy and enjoyable, with their exemplary pre and post-sale support. We have also had a very positive reaction from our parishioners, who have been happy with the improvement.

Kind Regards,
Most Rev Philip Wilson,
DD JCL Archbishop of Adelaide
