Candlemas - Thought for the Week, 1/29/2020
January 28, 2020, 1:39 PM

This Sunday, we will observe the Feast of Christ’s Presentation in the Temple.  For centuries, this feast has been combined with the celebration of Candlemas.  Just as Christ was presented in the temple as the light of the world, Christians present candles to be blessed as a reminder to become lights in the world.  Candles have long been a powerful Christian symbol, with many people receiving candles at their baptism as they begin their Christian journey.  There will be blessed candles available at both services this Sunday.
