What is Candlemas?

The Church’s three great Festivals of Light take place in the darkest, coldest months of winter: in December the feast of Christmas celebrates that the Light of the World is born to us as a tiny baby; in January the feast of Epiphany celebrates that He is shown outword for all the world, for Gentiles as much as for His own people, to receive Him and the salvation He brings, and in February the feast of Candlemas — the Presentation of Christ in the Temple — offers us the opportunity to bring the Light of Christ into our own homes as a blessing to everyone we know and love.

Join us on Thursday 2 February 2023 at 6:00 pm for a brief prayer service with candle-lighting.
