Candlemas February 2

One of the most ancient celebrations for Christians comes 40 days after Christmas, the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the temple. Traditionally it is marked with the blessing of candles, which are lit throughout the year to remind us of Christ’s light which has come into the world.

The congregation is invited to bring any candles they would like blessed from home.

At the 9:15a Forum the rector will lead a discussion about Candlemas, and the life on liturgical time. Children in Godly Play will also learn a bit about Candlemas.

All are invited to begin the 10:30am service in the back of the nave. We will hear from the choir, and then all can join in the procession.
