Jerusalem Candle

Welcome to the website of the parishioners of the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, in the Holy Land!

In Jerusalem the Christian community has existed since the very beginning of our faith. There were many centuries of harassment and persecution, but the most important principles of our faith remain the same: love and compassion for those around us. We have carried this in our hearts for centuries and we continue to do good works and help those who believe in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We, the parishioners of the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre, the home of the most important relics for all Christians, want to help our brethren all over the world to share in sanctity.

Wherever you may be, you can always come to us for help and support to strengthen our faith.  

How can we help you?
