Members and Friends Invited to Pick Up a Christmas Eve Candle Bag

One of our beloved UU Berks traditions is passing the light from one person to another while we join in singing Silent Night. To enable us to share joyfully in that tradition while worshiping virtually, each family is invited to pick up a Christmas Eve Candle Bag. Each bag includes a card, two candles, the music for Silent Night, and some chalice words too. We have a few bags with battery-operated candles available for our members living in facilities with no candle flame rules. 

You may pick up at two times and locations – but we do ask that you indicate your intention to do so here or by sending an email to in order for us to be well-prepared. 

  • Sat., Dec. 5, 2-3 pm at Oheb Sholom, 555 Warwick Dr, Wyomissing

Packets will be available on a table under the carport. You can drive through, hop out and get one. Rev. Sandra will be in the parking lot so feel free to say hello – socially distanced and masked, of course.

  • Thurs., Dec. 10, 11:30 am-12:30 pm at UU Berks, 416 Franklin St, Reading

Packets will be available in the Chalice House foyer. Ebee Bromley will be there to greet you and let you in. Please be sure to wear a mask and socially distance. 
If you are unable to pick up a Christmas Eve Candle Bag, we will mail you the card and song/chalice sheet, but we do ask that you provide your own candles to light. Questions? Please send an email to
