Candlemas at St Clement's

Join us at St Clement's this weekend as we celebrate the Feast of Candlemas.

Candlemas commemorates the ritual presentation of the 40-day old Jesus in the Temple and the ritual purification of his mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Marking as it does the midpoint between the shortest day and the Spring equinox, it is also traditionally a festival of light when candles are blessed, as we remember the one whom the elderly Simeon in the Temple called 'the Light to lighten the Gentiles'.

Fri 2nd Feb, 7.30pm: Taizé-style Eucharist
Sun 4th Feb, 11am: Sung Eucharist (BCP)
