Wednesday 2nd February is the celebration of Candlemas.
Candlemas, also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus Christ, is a holy day where we commemorate the presentation of Jesus at the Temple. Candles are blessed on this day and used for the rest of the year in our homes as a reminder of Jesus as the Light of the World.
Candles are available to purchase from the Repository (or the Parochial House during office hours) at £1 each. They can be collected from the Repository after blessing at the 9.30 a.m. Wednesday Mass.
