CANDLEMASS

Apart from also being the name of a ‘progressive’, Swedish ‘doom-rock’ band. Candlemass, also known as _ the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord Jesus. This is a Christian holiday commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple. While it is customary for Christians in some countries to remove their Christmas decorations on Twelfth Night (Epiphany Eve), many Christians remove them on Candlemas. So, how did it get it’s name ? It was also the tradition for Christians to bring their candles to the local church at this dark period of the year where they would be blessed before being used for the rest of the year - bringing “the Light of Christ” into each home..
There will be considerable disruption around St. Leonard’s Square while Gas Mains are replaced. Please allow extra time to park when attending church. MONDAY 16th JAN - FOR 16 DAYS
