Candlemas

Join us for the celebration of Candlemas. Candlemas acts like a ‘door hinge’ in the Church year. On the one hand, it looks back to the message and meaning of Christmas. Once again we learn that the infant Christ is the light of the world. On the other hand, the words of Simeon anticipate Lent, holy week and Easter by reminding us that this child is born to die.
