Women Together – Paschal Candles
Written by Radio Maria England on 29/04/2022
Genevieve and Tito spoke with Laura O’Conner from @reginasanctorum about her art of making Paschal candles for parishes and Cathedrals all over the world.
Laura shared, “I’m a young Catholic wife, mama, and artist. My wonderful husband, Kevin, is also an artist and an ecclesiastical designer. We are blessed with a sweet baby boy, Edmund Bede. I started painting church Paschal Candles 4 years ago, when my pastor asked me to paint a candle for my parish. The following year, I started selling them, and this past year I sent candles to 50 parishes and cathedrals. I also paint a variety of other religious artwork including commissioned pieces, holiday cards, and smaller candles for home use.”
