TY's Candlemaking with Br. Justin

TY's Candlemaking with Br. Justin
Denis Hooper

Christopher Burke Young and Jonas Osterhelt, both TY students, visited the monastery recently to learn about candle making from Br Justin.

 

Br Justin uses wax from the monastery bees to make candles for our shop and was happy to teach this skill to students from the school.

 

The use of candles reminds us of Christ’s presence and light dispelling the darkness of the world, and they have been used in church worship since the earliest times of Christianity.

 

Christopher and Jonas made their own candles which will be sold at the TY Christmas market on 8th December.
