Service Reminder: Vesperal Liturgy for the Presentation of Christ in the Temple Tonight

Just a quick reminder: We will be celebrating Vesperal Liturgy tonight for the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, one of the twelve great feasts of the church. Because of the emphasis on Christ being the light of the world in righteous Simeon’s prophecy (“a light to enlighten the Gentiles and the glory of Your people, Israel”), it is traditional, at this feast, to bring any candles that you will be using in your prayer corner at home to be blessed. (For more detail on this, please see Fr. Stephen’s excellent post here.)

Also, as is usual with any Vesperal Liturgy, those intending to receive communion at the service tonight are reminded to fast from about noon on, in preparation.

Love in Christ,

Fr. Justin.
