Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Behold our Salvation, the Light to lighten the Gentiles, the Glory of His People Israel! On Wednesday, February 2, we shall hold the Feast of the Purification of Mary, where we remember our Lord first coming to the Temple and being presented to the Priest Simeon who then sang his Nunc Dimittis. At the beginning of this Mass we shall bless the candles that we shall be using this year, a practice which gave this Feast the name Candlemas. The Mass will be held at 7:00 p.m.
