February 3- Choral Evensong

Join us for Choral Evensong on Wednesday, February 3 at 6:00pm. Experience the music of Adrian Batten & William Byrd, sung by Schola Epiphaniensis.

At this service we will mark the feast of Candlemas. Candlemas, also called Presentation Of Christ In The Temple, in the Christian church, festival on February 2, commemorates occasion when the Virgin Mary, in obedience to Jewish law, went to the Temple in Jerusalem both to be purified 40 days after the birth of her son and to present Jesus to God as her firstborn (Luke 2:22–38). The festival was formerly known in the Roman Catholic church as the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and is now known as the Presentation of the Lord. In the Anglican/Episcopal church it is called the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.
