Candlemas – I AM THE LIGHT

posted in: News | 0

Commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple, Candlemas is based upon the account of the presentation of Jesus in Luke 2:22-40. On Candlemas, many Christians bring candles to their local church, where traditionally they are blessed and then used for the rest of the year. These blessed candles serve as a symbol of Jesus Christ, who referred to himself as the Light of the World.

This year, Candlemas at St. Mary’s featured a lively celebration with live music from the resident Music Group, singing and children presenting their candles for blessing.
