Do you have skills or interest in making candles? GPZC is looking for someone to make candles for use on our altars. We will supply all materials. Candles placed on the altar signify wisdom and are an important part of our liturgy. Making our own candles allows us to use recycled wax from burned candles and saves a considerable amount of money. This will also allow us to eventually switch to the use of soy candles.
