I would be interested to know thoughts from worshippers about how
candlemass liturgy was in your community. In particular, where all ages
participating, what hymns or songs went well, and any other thoughts.
I am aware that the US is mourning the astronauts who died in the recent
disaster. They were remebered in prayer at my church in the UK too.

- At my former Episcopal parish in DC, all of the candles for the year arrive in January and are placed in a position for blessing as a part of the Candlemas liturgy.Two years ago, when the liturgy was done in the atrium and then everyone processed into the church, the candles were on a dolley that was then easily moved to the elevator and down to the basement room where most of the candles are stored.Although in the Catholic Church there are both formal and comparatively informal rites for the blessing of candles, there is no requirement that they be blessed:David---------------------------

We just have a pile of candles on a table that are sprinkled and
censed and blessed. Whether it represents the entire year's worth of
candles is of little concern (perhaps it's sort of a baptism by proxy
of all the other candles that didn't make it to the table).
