February 3rd is the Festival of Candlemass. Today we encourage all the Churches of the group to join with us at Kirton at 11:00am for a special Mass to celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple.
The name “Candlemass” comes from the solemn blessing of candles for use in church and in homes during the year. We will unite our prayers and hearts with our forebears as we walk in procession around the Church on this feast, a tradition that stretches bacl to the time of Pope St Gelasius I (d 496). St Bernard of Clairvaux also said that in processing we imitate Mary and Joseph, Anna and Simeon, walking two by two with candles lighted from the blessed fire of the Church.
Please pray for Vimbai, Natalie, Sebastian and Damien who make their first Holy Communion today. A party will follow Mass, all are welcome.
John Alexander Manzi RIP It is with real sadness that we report that John died on January 22nd in Reading, Berkshire. There will be a Requiem Mass sung in SS Peter & Paul, Kirton on February 8th at 2:00pm followed by Cremation at Boston Crematorium.
