The Three-Day Weekend

This Friday, February 2, at 6 PM, we have our First Friday Sacred Heart Community Mass.  On that day, we also celebrate the feast of the Presentation of the Lord, where Jesus is presented in the temple as our light.  The Mass begins with a procession with candles (thus the traditional name, Candlemas).
