A light to lighten the Gentiles

Tomorrow (2 February) is Candlemas - the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple. The feast is celebrated 40 days after Christmas Day and brings Christmastide to a close.

The lighted candles remind us of the words of Simeon 'a light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel'.

Our fully lit Advent Wreath is a lovely symbol of Jesus Christ - the Light of the World.
