Since the early centuries, Christians have marked the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord by blessing candles for use in church and home. This year, we will bless candles during the daily Masses on February 2. You will be able to take a candle home (one per family, please.) to use during the year for special celebrations and feast days.
We will keep the seasons of the year
together in the Light of Christ,
a Light no darkness can overpower.
