A Celebration for Candlemas

 

Details

A beautiful candlelit service of prayer, readings and music to celebrate Christ, Our Light.

Candlemas is a Christian holiday occurring annually that commemorates the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple when he was a baby. It occurs 40 days (inclusively) after Christmas Day.  The term "Candlemas" (meaning Candle Mass) refers to the practice of the blessing of candles by the priest during the service for use during the year in church and in the homes of the congregation.

While in many countries Christmas decorations are traditionally removed on Twelfth Night (January 5, also known as Epiphany Eve), for other countries it is customary to remove them on Candlemas.
