Members of the congregation hold candles lit from the flame of the Paschal candle at the start of the Easter Vigil liturgy on April 4 at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford.

Paschal candles are lit and blessed at the start of the Easter Vigil liturgy and the light is passed on to candles held by members of the congregation in the darkened church.
