A new Paschal candle is lit every year from blessed Easter fire at the beginning of the Easter Vigil with the ‘Light of Christ’ then processing into a darkened Church. This candle is lit at all ceremonies Masses during the Easter Season and then throughout the year on special occasions, such as baptisms and funerals. The Paschal candle is an ancient tradition dating back to earliest Christianity and the poetic and solemn text of the ‘Exultet’, the Easter Proclamation describes it is as ‘a pillar of fire that glows to the honour of God’. We have a wide variety of Paschal Candle options and can offer personalised designs and parish names to candles. A very special hand crafted gold wax banding and framing is also available, which lifts your paschal candle to an even more beautiful level.
