Chalice Lighters
Are you interested in participating in Worship at UUCT on Sunday morning?

Sign up to be a Chalice Lighter!

Our long-term members will remember our beloved tradition of having someone from the congregation light the chalice candle during the reading. Our move to Goddard up-ended that tradition — and now is a good time to bring it back!

The actual chalice lighting is fairly simple and risk free!

Here are the details:

  •  If this is your first time
    • meet with Pastor Jamili or the Worship Associate before 10:15 am
      • to practice and review the Order of Service.
  • Try to sit near the front — so there’s only a short walk to the chalice.
  • The chalice lighting will be some time after the welcome.
    • You’ll be able to follow along with the Order of Service and slide show
      • to know when it’s time to go up.
  • Lighting the candles:
    • There will be a tea light burning.
    • You’ll just light the taper candle from the tea light
      • and then light the big candle in the chalice.
  • Usually, the chalice lighting will be a unison reading
    • ie, you won’t have to say or read anything.
  • Children are welcome to participate in this!
    • Please have an adult assist children under 10 years.
    • They can stay in service after the Chalice Lighting
      • or you can walk them to the nursery.
  • No special attire is required – though you may prefer something non-flammable. 😊
