February Feasts: Blessings of Candles and Throats

Candlemas: Blessing of Candles
Fri, Feb 2, 2024
8:05AM and 12:05PM Masses
The feast of the Presentation of the Lord celebrates the occasion when Mary brought the infant Jesus to the Temple and presented him to the people. Simeon recognized Jesus as the Christ: “He is a light to reveal God to the nations.” Hence, the day is also known as Candlemas (the Feast of Light). Please bring candles from home to one of the daily Masses to be blessed in celebration of the Light of the World, Jesus Christ.

Blessing of Throats

8:05AM and 12:05PM Masses
On the feast of St. Blaise, patron of sore throats, and through his intercession, we pray for protection from afflictions of the throat and from other illnesses – especially relevant during the winter as we are all on guard against highly contagious respiratory infections (flu, Covid, and RSV) caused by viruses.
