FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD - TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2ND

Traditionally, candles used in our churches for the upcoming year are blessed on this Feast Day, remembering, 40 days after the celebration of Christmas, the words of Simeon as Jesus was presented by Mary and Joseph in the temple, "a revealing light to the Gentiles, glory for your people, Israel!" As we celebrate Jesus, the Light of the World, blessed candles for home use will be available as you leave Mass in our parishes. Suggested Donation is 3.00.
