Paschal Candle

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Many thanks for your guidance and direction in all liturgical matters. 

During the Lenten season the Paschal Candle has been at the baptismal font.  When should it be removed during Holy Week as we prepare for the Paschal Triduum?


A: It remains in place until the Easter Vigil. Then the old candle is put away, and the stand is moved next to the ambo or in the middle of the sanctuary.
