Highly Decorated Orthodox Baptism Candles, Pick your Style from Traditional to Contemporary. Match your selection with an Orthodox Towel Set, Favors, Oil Bottle and Soap for a Complete Baptismal Package. Traditionally the Godparents (Nouna & Nouno Or Sponsors) hold two smaller candles during the service, the third candle is larger and highly decorated. The candle is brought with the newly baptized to Church the following two Sundays for Communion. A few minutes prior to Communion the Candle is lit and brought to the Altar during Communion. After communion the Candle is blown out.
