Please arrive an hour before the service begins.
In addition to the typical responsibilities for Sunday services, on Christmas Eve, your first responsibility after gowning, is to light the pew candles. Working with a parent or other adult, remove the globe (adult), light the candle using an igniter and replace the globe (adult). Each acolyte is responsible for one side of the sanctuary.
Near the end of the service, when the organist begins to play Silent Night, two acolytes assist in lighting the handheld candles beginning with the first person in each pew.
After the service ends, extinguish the pew candles with the help of an adult.
