This chapel is located along the pilgrim<92>s path to the main church located near the top of the hill.  It offers them an opportunity to light a candle as a long-lasting memorial for special intentions.  The center of the chapel contains a pyramid candle rack that is reported to be the largest in the United States, measuring 14 feet high and 12 feet wide on each of its four sides.  In the evening, the flickering glow of the candles light the stained glass windows.  The stained glass windows honor Our Blessed Mother under some of her many titles.
