As the first reading from Genesis for the Easter Vigil indicates, light was God’s first creation. The undulating bands of color, punctuated by 22K genuine gold slivers of the moon, suggest the formless abyss giving way to the Creator’s cosmic order.
At the Easter Vigil, the priest will personally finish the candle, carving the year, the Alpha and the Omega into blank wax. Rosettes, which are not obligatory for the paschal candle, are not included with Genesis. Created in 2004.
Color Option: Sapphire • Blue • Teal
Custom color combinations are available upon request for an additional fee. Please specify your preference in the notes field at checkout.
Our Paschal candles are intended to be burned with a follower.
