Candlemass

 

 

Candlemass in catholic churches is the mass, where all candles for use in the coming year are blessed. We dont do that in the National Danish Church, but we gather in the dark of the winter and celebrate the light, both within and without, with candle processions, candle lighting, drama, music, song and various readings.
