Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

On Friday, February 2nd at the 8:30 AM Mass, St. Peter Catholic Church in Covington will celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (also known as Candlemas Day) with a solemn procession from the sacristy to the entrance of the nave where St. Peter Parish’s traditional blessing of candles will take place. This solemn procession represents the entry of Christ, who is the light of the World, into the Temple of Jerusalem. Candles will be blessed on this day in remembrance of Simeon’s prophecy about Jesus as the light to the Gentiles. Everyone is invited to bring candles to the 8:30 AM Mass on Friday, February 2nd for this special blessing for use in their homes.
