Candlemas 2019

The feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated in the traditional way, with the blessing of candles, procession, the blessing of the newly refurbished statue of Our Lady in the parish garden and a Missa Cantata. Candlemas is the end of the Christmas season and so, in anticipation of Septuagessimatide, the Marian antiphon is changed to Ave Regina Caelorum which was sung, as is our custom, at the conclusion of Mass.
