'Follow your dreams using the guiding light of Jesus'

School Video


At Easter, the Easter candle (Paschal candle) is lit. The Alpha and Omega symbols reflect that Gos is the beginning and the end - he is eternal. The nails with grains of incense symbolise the wounds of Jesus and the light proclaims his resurrection.


Have a look at the information PowerPoint below to find out more about the Paschal candle.

Then design your own candle and write an Easter prayer. Think about how Jesus is the light of the world and how he shows us the way. Do you maybe need help with something? Do you want to say thank you? Or perhaps a sorry prayer?


If you're feeling arty - have a go at creating a 3D candle!
