Children of St Margaret's Budapest prepare the paschal candle

Krisztus feltámadt! 

The priest-in-charge of St Margaret's Budapest, the Revd Dr Frank Hegedus, sent me the traditional Easter greeting in Hungarian, along with some photos of an important feature in the parish's Holy Week preparations.

It has been the custom for the past several years for the children of the congregation to decorate the Paschal Candle towards the end of Lent. These photos show them hard at work in Sunday School on Palm Sunday and presenting the finished product to the congregation. The candle now burns brightly during the Eastertide services.
