Caring for a Burning Candle

Care While Burning

  1. Try not to disturb candles that are performing satisfactorily.
  2. Place candles out of the way of drafts. Airflow from sources such as ceiling fans, heating or air conditioning ducts, or perhaps an open sacristy door, may need to be redirected.

Lighting and Extinguishing Candles


  1. Seat a properly sized candle FIRMLY and VERTICALLY STRAIGHT in the candlestick. Tilted candles may cause irregular burning and dripping.
  2. Approximately 3/4-inch of EXPOSED WICK is recommended for efficient burning. Trim if necessary
