Santka Lucia Celebrates Light of Winter

Old Swedes Church in Wilmington was illuminated in candlelight on December 7th, as parishioners celebrated Saint Lucia, the bearer of light. Boys and girls wore special white gowns and held white candles as they processed into church. The special feast day of Santka Lucia included a special role for everyone, from toddlers to teenagers, and bright-eyed parents and grandparents enjoyed the moments when their children sang and performed. Old Swedes Church is a Delaware landmark; it was dedicated on July 4, 1699.
