Candlemas Sung Mass

February 2 @ 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

We will celebrate Candlemas Day (the presentation of Our Lord in the Temple as well as the purification of Our Lady) with a sung mass. This is the traditional day to bless candles, so we invite you to bring candles before mass and leave them at the communion rail, where they will be place by the altar to be blessed. After the blessing, the mass is preceded by a candle-lit procession around the Church to symbolize the light of the Gentiles being brought into the world as well as Christ entering His temple for the very first time. The liturgy abounds with symbolism and Catholic culture. We hope to have many participate in this mass and procession as it marks the close of the Liturgical Christmas season.
