Candlemas Celebration

Saint Patrick in Arroyo Grande

ARROYO GRANDE – On Thursday, 2 February 2023, the parish of Saint Patrick, 501 Fair Oaks Avenue, will be celebrating the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas, with Mass at 6:30pm.

Attendees are asked to bring candles to be blessed during the candlelit Mass which will conclude with a procession around the parish church followed by a bonfire and snacks in the courtyard.

“Join us as we echo Simeon’s song of praise in thanks for Jesus, the ‘revealing light’ to the world…”

Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word; for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation which Thou hast prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to Thy people Israel” (Luke 2:29-32; RSV-1CE).
