Altar Guild Project: Old Paschal Candles Wanted

The Episcopal Native Americans on the Cheyenne River Reservation are in need of  Paschal Candles. When someone dies they burn Paschal Candles from two to four days. I would like to collect Old Paschal Candles at the ECW Fall Event and at the General Convention. Once collected then I will send them to the Reservation as a gift from the Altar Guild of Diocese of the Upper South Carolina.

Remember that all worn and or old Altar Linens can be mailed to me for proper disposal and or recycling. Also, email me regarding any changes to your Parish Altar Guild Officers. For any question and or concerns please email Valerie Riley at
