Feast of St Blaise – Fri, 03-Feb-23


On Friday we celebrate the Feast of Saint Blaise.  The Blessings of the Throats takes place on this day  – two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as the blessing is said.  Saint Blaise’s protection of those with throat troubles apparently comes from a legend that a boy was brought to him who had a fishbone stuck in his throat. The boy was about to die when Saint Blaise healed him.

The blessing of the throats will take place in our parish after 10am Mass on on Friday.

Candlemas Day, Thurs 02-Feb-23

Thursday, 02 February 2023 is the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord and is also known as Candlemas Day. The term “Candlemas” (meaning Candle Mass) refers to the practice of the blessing of candles by the priest during mass for use during the year in church and in our homes.  Candles will be blessed during Mass on Thursday.

If you would like to have candles blessed, please leave them into the Sacristy before 10am Mass on Thursday, 02 February.  Please remember to label the candles with your name so they can be returned to you.
