Welcome to REGINA Candles where we create beautifully decorated Paschal and Baptismal candles for parishes and individuals.
All of the designs are the original work of Gina Switzer and based on traditional Catholic imagery.
Our mission is to bring beauty into the church with theologically appropriate images on liturgical grade candles made by Root Candle Co. in Medina, OH.
"Receive this burning light and keep your Baptism so as to be without blame. Keep the commandments of God that when the Lord shall come to the nuptials, you may meet Him together with all the saints in the heavenly court and may have eternal life and live forever and ever." (From the Rite of Catholic Baptism)
Baptism is our adoption into the family of God, an incredible gift and a key moment of life when we are freed of sin and filled with God’s grace. Baptism leads to all other Sacraments where we continue to be nourished by God’s Church. At each baptism a blessed candle is lit from the Paschal candle, the great symbol of Christ in every Catholic church. The little light of the baptismal candle is brought home but too often forgotten.
Many cultures cherish the baptismal candle as the sign of that great birth into the family of God. The candles accompany the person to the rest of their Sacraments and they are brought out each year to celebrate the baptismal date, Christmas, Candlemas and Easter.
Our artisanal candles are personalized, liturgical quality, 51 % beeswax that will help families remember the incredible gift of baptism. There are seven Christological themes from which to choose. Each candle comes in a protective tube with a votive holder and suggestions for implementing annual baptismal celebrations into your family tradition. The candle is a beautiful and perpetual gift, a perfect gift from grandparents or god parents.
