February 1 - Paschal Candles
For the past two years, Sr. Florentina Marie has been hard at work in our downstairs candle workshop, hand-pouring Paschal candles (as well as all our altar candles, Advent candles and other interesting creations) and letting them cure. This January, she spent time with our Franciscan Poor Clare sisters at St. Clare's Monastery in Duncan learning how to decorate and finish the Paschal candles with a variety of fine wax designs. Thank-you, dear sisters, for your gracious and joyful support! Here are the "first fruits" of this year's candles.
