Blessing of Candles

The Church celebrates the solemn Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on Feb. 2.  Special candles will be blessed at Mass for the faithful to take home and use.   The candles will be blessed in a special ritual with a procession at the 7:30 a.m. Mass on Wednesday, Feb. 2.  The blessed candles may be obtained after the Mass for a donation of $4 for a box of two “Candlemas” candles.

Blessing of Throats

The Church celebrates the Feast of St. Blaise on Feb. 3.  Using candles blessed the day before at the Mass of the Presentation of the Lord, the faithful will be blessed through the intercession of St. Blaise.  Throats will be blessed after Mass on Feb. 3 and the weekend of Feb. 5/6.
