For 95 years, the Candlelight Service has been a milestone of the St. Lawrence experience and the holiday season. The service offers a pause for reflection before final exams. It marks the end of the fall semester and the approaching turn of the calendar year. The service also signals the beginning of winter and the promise of longer daylight.
