  • The three-piece glass system eliminates the need for any plastic/metal cups aiding the environmental benefit to St. Killians
  • The outer glass is secured on the stand
  • The middle glass acts as a barrier to protect the colour glass from any excess wax
  • The candle itself sits in the inner glass
  • The candle burns for 60-90 minutes
  • Once it comes to the end of its life it falls through a hole at the bottom of the glass, extinguishing itself on the way down, falling into a water bath to guarantee quenching
  • The candle is made from 3 times refined paraffin and therefore does not emit any soot or smoke; protecting the churches features and artifacts from damage
