Candlemass is a Catholic tradition which is celebrated on 2nd February. On this day candles are blessed and given to family and friends as we remember that Christ is a light in the world, and that we too have that same light within us.
To celebrate the Year of Faith, CAFOD North Wales asked Bishop Peter Brignall to bless candles for all the CAFOD volunteers and supporters in the diocese of Wrexham, which have been given to parishes and community groups, alongside Witness to the Light – A prayer for the Year of Faith, prayer card in graditude for their continued support to CAFOD.
If you would like to collect a blessed candle and prayer card, please visit our office.
