Annunciation Church - Elma, NY

Feb 2nd is the feast of the Presentation of the Lord. Mary and Joseph bring the baby to be consecrated to God in the temple. Simeon, a righteous and devout elderly man, and Anna, a widow and woman of prayer, are inspired to see Jesus as the light to the Gentiles and the hope and consolation of Israel. There is a custom of blessing candles on this day. On Monday parishioners are invited to bring candles from home to be blessed at the 7:30 AM Communion Service and at the 9:00 AM morning Mass. Tuesday, Feb 3rd is the feast of St. Blaise. Throats will be blessed at the Communion Service and morning Mass. These two traditional devotions still have relevance. We light candles during storms to dispel darkness and remind us of Jesus as the light of the world. We have our throats blessed trusting that we can bring all our ailments to Lord for healing and strength.
