Ice Candle Memorial Service 2019
Ice candles lit up the night with their soft glow at local churches and cemeteries on Dec. 20 as part of Sioux Lookout’s 19th annual Ice Candle Memorial Service.
A service to remember and honour area residents departed in the past year, as well as loved ones departed in years 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.
