Procession

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part - The Great Vigil of Easter - The Service of Light

The Paschal Candle is then lighted from the newly kindled fire, and the Deacon (the Celebrant if there is no deacon) bearing the Candle, leads the procession to the chancel, pausing three times and singing or saying:
The light of Christ.
People
Thanks be to God.

Candles distributed to members of the congregation are lighted from the Paschal Candle at this time. Other candles and lamps in the church, except for those at the Altar, may also be lighted.

The Paschal Candle is placed in its stand.
