Everyone is welcome to bring candles made with (at least a portion of) beeswax to be blessed for home use. A procession immediately follows the blessing and distribution of candles, followed by Mass. The primary purpose of the blessing of candles is for use at the altar.
On Wednesday 3 Feb, after the 7 AM Mass, there will be a blessing of throats through the intercession of St Blaise, bishop and martyr. The blessing will also be available after the Masses on Sunday.
