Purification of BVM @ Mary Immaculate Church

Join us for a Missa Cantata to celebrate the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary which recalls that forty days after the birth of Our Lord, Mary presented herself and the child Jesus in the Temple to fulfil the rites of purification. In this place the prophet Simeon foretold that this child would be a light to the gentiles and the glory of His people Israel. As per the tradition on this day, immediately after Mass there will be the opportunity for people to have their candles blessed, that they will use at home during the year for prayer and devotion.
