All expectant mothers! Join us at St. Frances Cabrini Church on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 8 a.m. for our Candlemas celebration. There will be a special blessing for all expectant mothers and those wishing to conceive in this new year. Beignets will be served after the Mass.
Candlemas (celebrated on Feb. 2), also known as the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Feast of the Presentation of our Lord Jesus, is a Christian holiday commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple. It is also the day that Catholics bring their candles to a local church to have them blessed for the rest of the year.
