Welcome to REGINA Candles where we create beautifully decorated Paschal and Baptismal candles for parishes and families.
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.
From the first centuries of the Church, the Paschal candle has been used as a symbol of Christ our Light.
The purity of the beeswax represents the perfect flesh of Christ. The flame represents the light of the Resurrection and that’s just a start on the symbolism of the great Paschal!
Gina’s Paschal candles present a visual catechesis on Christological themes. Useful as visual aids for preaching truths of the faith especially at baptisms and funerals, they also add beauty to the sanctuary. Available on Root 51% beeswax candles in a variety of sizes, each Paschal is made to order. Hand applied gold accents enhance meticulously applied original designs creating a handsome finished Paschal candle. Coordinating altar and baptismal candles are also available.
"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)
