Cathedral Commons—Candlemas Eve Candle-Making & Evening Prayer
February 1 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2023, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall only. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family).
This in-person only event looks ahead to Candlemas, the Feast of the Presentation (February 2, midway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox) of the infant Jesus in the temple, when Simeon recognizes him as the Anointed One, “the Light to enlighten the Nations.” Traditionally, it is the day in which candles are blessed for use in the coming year, so we’ll hear about the history of the day, make candles to take home and end with a simple service of Evening Prayer in Thomsen Chapel.
