The 9:30 AM Mass will be preceded by the blessing of the candles. If you have candles you would like blessed please bring them to church with you. We will have blessed candles for you to take home. On this day all the candles used for liturgies as well as candles for home use are blessed as a reminder that Christ is the light of the world. Traditionally, many families have used blessed candles when their lights go out in the storm and during difficult times as a reminder that Christ’s light continues to shine even in the darkest times.
