Candlemas & The Blessing of Throats
Wednesday, February 2nd at 6:00pm
Join us for Candlemas and the Blessing of the Throats on Wednesday February 2nd at 6:00pm. At this service we will celebtate the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Temple. We will bless all of the candles to be used in the Church for the coming year in a beautiful service of light. During the service, following the ancient traditions of the Church, we will also offer the Blessing of the Throats in honor of Saint Blaise. This is a healing rite in which the priest offers prayers for health for the individual persons. This was a loved and much talked about service last year, so save the date and come on out to Saint John’s to celebrate Mary & Joseph presenting Jesus in the Temple. A nursery will be provided and a reception will follow.
