Feast of the Presentation of Lord and Candlemas Day: At 10.00 am Mass Fr. Gerry will bless the candles which are used in the church during the year.

Candlemas is a Christian holiday celebrated annually on February 2. It celebrates three occasions according to Christian belief: the presentation of the child Jesus; Jesus’ first entry into the temple; and it celebrates the Virgin Mary’s purification.

World Day for Consecrated Life is also celebrated in the Church’s calendar today, but we have nominated to celebrate it our parish next Sunday, 7th February.
