ORTHODOX CHRISTENING CANDLES
The lighted candle is very symbolic during Christening ceremonies within the Orthodox church. It represents the light of Christ according to Jesus' own words, ” I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”.
Candles are traditionally decorated with tulle, materials and other embellishments.
Most Orthodox ceremonies require just one candle, but some denominations require two. If you are unsure please check in with us before placing order.
