Sioux Lookout’s 18th annual Ice Candle Memorial Service took place on the evening of Dec. 21.
A service to remember and honour area residents who had passed away in the past year, as well as loved ones departed in year’s past, the service began at St. Andrew’s United Church.
The three part ceremony, which included scripture readings, hymns, and the lighting of memorial candles, continued at St. Mary’s Anglican Church and concluded at Sacred Heart Church.
Ice candles prepared by members of the Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout were placed in front of each of the three churches, as well as atop snow pyramids at Sacred Heart / Northway Cemetery and Hillcrest Cemetery.
