Feb 2 – Feast of the Presentation
Today we celebrated the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple. Our liturgy began with the traditional blessing of the candles and procession to the church for the celebration of the Eucharist. As Fr. Mark pointed out in his homily, today marks 40 days from our celebration of the Nativity of the Lord and we begin to anticipate the 40 days of Lent that will begin in less than two weeks.
