Candlemas

A Handmaid News

We share a few photos from very early in the month as we marked Candlemas, February 2nd. This is the Feast of the Presentation and the World Day for Consecrated Life. As such, along with blessing the candles we will use throughout the year in our Chapel and Oratories, we honor Jesus and Mary and thank God for his gift to us of the Consecrated Life. How better to thank the Lord than to adore him?
