Today is Candlemas, the traditional feast day of the Purification of Mary. The modern calendar calls this the feast of the Presentation of Our Lord. Don’t fret, it is the same joyful mystery.


Today is the end of the Christmas season. There is still one more Mass for today’s feast at St. Francis de Sales Oratory at 6:30 pm with the traditional blessing of candles and procession.

And, one more time, Merry Christmas!
