Marian Helpers Circle of Light

Candlemas 2012

It started with a piece of wax.

The Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas, is celebrated on February 2nd. This year many of our Marian Helpers and Circle of Light Members participated by sending in pieces of candle wax with their intentions to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy. They were then melted together to create one large candle for the feast day.

This candle was blessed along with the candles people were holding and lit as part of the ritual at the beginning of Mass by Shrine Rector Fr. Ken Dos Santos, MIC.
