We had a huge wreath that was raised and lowered each week to light the candles. Quite heavy on a pully mechanism. The disadvantage was that for Daily Mass we would always have to let it down, light the cnadle and hoist it back up. A lot of pullying to do for some of us ladies.
This year, our pastor put a stationary one located in the sanctuary to the side of the altar. Much easier — and much smaller with smaller candles.
