On Thursday, February 2, we will have the annual blessing of candles, followed by a Low Mass.

As we did last year, we will begin with the blessing of the candles, then process around the Church with lit candles, and then start the Holy Mass.

At that time, when the days of Mary’s purification were fulfilled according to the Law of Moses, they took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord – as it is written in the Law of the Lord, Every male that opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord – and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons.
