THE FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD
Next Sunday, February 2, is 40 days after Christmas and we commemorate the presentation of Jesus and his ransoming as the firstborn son. We will read the beautiful passage from Luke’s Gospel and special prayers of the day. It is also called Candlemas day because the candles for the year are blessed and there is a procession with lit candles from the narthex to the sanctuary. This will be enacted at our 9 AM Mass with the children in our Religious Education program. If you have candles at home which you wished blessed, you are invited to bring them to that Mass. Instructions will be given beforehand.
