Trillium News – Jan 31/20 Edition
Join us at our 9 a.m. or 11 a.m. Worship Service this Sunday, February 2/20 as we celebrate the ‘Presentation of Our Lord’: “The Presentation of Our Lord is referred to in some corners of the church as Candlemas because of an ancient tradition of blessing all the candles to be used in the church in the coming year at the mass celebrated on that day. It was a way of underscoring the truth of Simeon’s confession that this baby Jesus was ‘a light for revelation to the Gentiles’ and a light for glory to Israel. Let the light of every candle in church be a little epiphany of the love of God for all people in the person of God’s Son, Jesus, the light of the world.” READING: Malachi 3:1-4 / PSALM 24:7-10 / GOSPEL: Luke 2:22-40
