You are reminded that there is a Prayer Request Board by the Madonna and Child at the front of the church, with a pen and slip of paper for your use.  The prayers on the board are offered at the altar at the Masses during the week.  They do not require a signature, and you can take the opportunity to light a candle if you wish - or not.
