CANDLEMAS (Presentation of Our Lord) 2 February

Candlemas commemorates  the ritual presentation of the baby Jesus to God in the Temple at Jerusalem. The Gospel of Luke says that Jesus was met by Anna and Simeon. Simeon held the baby Jesus and called him a ‘Light to enlighten the world’. The festival is known as Candlemas because this was traditionally the day that all the Church's candles for the year are blessed.
