The Presentation of the Lord and Blessing of Candles

Tue., February 2, 2016 (All day) ·

“Behold, our Lord will come with power, to enlighten the eyes of his servants."

On Tuesday, February 2, we celebrate the Presentation of the Lord, a joyful event told in the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke. “Led by the Spirit, Simeon and Anna came to the temple, recognized Christ as their Lord, and proclaimed him with joy.”

On this feast celebrating Christ, the light to the nations, enough candles are blessed to last the whole year. Msgr. Jameson will bless our candles at the 7am Mass this year.
