There is a family in our parish who soon will be baptized into the Church. The mom and children were here today making their baptismal candles in preparation. Some of our own children worked on making Paschal candles at the same time. We had a lot of fun.
For the baptism candles, they rolled white honeycomb beeswax and then glued on an icon of their patron saint using a glue stick. Afterward, each child cut pieces of candle Stockmar Decorating Wax to decorate.
For the Paschal candles, an icon image of the Resurrection was glued onto a beeswax dipped candle and then they were decorated.
