Candlemas, Feast of the Purification

Tomorrow, Feb 2, is the Feast of the Purification of the BVM, also known as Candlemas. Traditionally, on this day, there is a special ritual for the blessing of candles and then a procession follows.

The full celebration will take place at Immaculate Conception at the 12pm High Mass.

For those attending St. Stephen, please be aware that time constraints will not permit this ritual. Instead, the Faithful may bring candles and hold them up to be sprinkled during the asperges ceremony.

St. Blaise

The Feast of St. Blaise is on Monday, Feb 3. St. Blaise was a physician and bishop, and was beheaded in 316. According to The Acts of St. Blaise, a mother, whose child was choking on a bone in his throat, threw herself at St. Blaise's feet as he was being taken into custody. She implored his intercession for her child, and upon the Saint's prayers, the child was cured.

Immaculate Conception Cleveland offers a 7am Mass every Monday morning.

In anticipation of the feast day,  Fr. Bede will bless throats following the 9:30am Sunday Mass on Feb 2. The faithful are invited to approach the rail after the choir receives communion following Mass. Father will say the intercessory prayer ONCE over the entire congregation, and then proceed to touch throats at the rail. This, again, is due to time constraints.
