The Most Reverend Dennis J. Sullivan, Bishop of Camden, honored us with his presence at Candlemas this year. The bishop blessed the candles and led the procession. A solemn Mass followed at which he presided. The procession began at the rectory and proceeded outside to the Church.
Bishop Sullivan enters the Church to the “Ecce Sacerdos Magnus.”
The Candles are brought to the bishop and he sings the five prayers.
The altar servers light their candles and get ready for the procession.
The Mass followed.
Thanks be to God for a beautiful feast. May the light of God’s grace always shine through our lives. More pictures at www.materecclesiae.org/galleries/
