Sung Eucharist for Candlemas
Sun February 2 . 10.00 am
A traditional service of worship, featuring hymns, Holy Communion and music from Prescot Parish Church Choir.
Today we celebrate Candlemas, when Mary and Joseph presented the infant Jesus in the Jerusalem Temple. There he was seen by two elderly people, the prophetess Anna and the man Simeon. In Jesus they saw that God’s promised salvation had come. We commemorate the event by lighting candles and processing to the font at the end of the service.
