If you are joining in with the Easter Vigil live, we would like to ask that you light a candle at home during the lighting of the Paschal Candle and take a photograph, to share with media@osp.org.uk. We will compile these pictures into a collage and share in the newsletter and online as a mark of our communal Easter Fire.
