Christingle Service

All the pupils in Kiltallagh  were delighted to welcome our chairperson Andrew to celebrate a Christingle Service with us recently.



orange service 1

A Christingle ‘consists of an orange, in the top of which a small hole has been bored. The word ‘Christingle’ means ‘Christ-Light’. The orange is said to represent the world, the candle represents Christ as the light of the world. Cocktail sticks are inserted into the orange with sweets on them. The sweets are the fruits of the earth, God’s good gifts to his children. The red ribbon is a reminder of the incarnation and passion of Jesus, in which all Christians share.

The children all played a very active part and sang the Christingle Song.
