Festal Eucharist with Candlemas Procession

Saturday 2nd February

17:15 - 18:15

Description:Today’s Eucharist and Candlemas Procession brings to an end the Christmas cycle, forty days after the birth of Jesus. The Cathedral is lit by candlelight, mirroring the Temple to which Jesus was taken, and acclaimed by Simeon as, ‘the light to enlighten the nations’. As well as the countering of darkness by light, this beautiful feast, in its bittersweetness, reminds us of all that it to come in the life of Jesus Christ, and the cost of being that light. Music by Andrea Gabrieli and Michael Praetorius.
