For the first time in its history, the Moravian Church in Nain will not be holding their Candle Services at the Church.
This year the Candle Services will have to be held at the Jens Haven Memorial School Gym.
Gordon Obed Sr. is with the Moravian Church in Nain.
He says the church leaders received a letter this morning prompting them to not use the church for the Candle Service this year.
Engineers are recommending the church not be used for any large gathering of people.
In fact, it is recommended that occupancy be kept to a minimum.
It has also been recommended that no one be in the church if there is snow on the roof.
Obed adds the church leaders have decided to use the school instead of cancelling the Candle Services altogether.
But they won’t be able to light the candles for the service.
