February 2 we celebrate the Feast of The Presentation of the Lord. In olden times this was also called Candlemas Day, which commemorated the purification ofMary according to the prescribed Mosaic Law, which occurred forty days after Christ’s birth. Candles were traditionally blessed on this day to commemorate Christ as the light of all nations and represents his entry into the temple. These blessed candles may be taken to be used in your homes. A small donation is recommended to help defray cost of candles. Blessing of Candles will take place this weekend, January 4 & 5, after all Masses.
