FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD IN THE TEMPLE
Thursday, February 2
ND

Masses at 5:30PM (Latin) and 7:00PM (Bilingual)
The Presentation of the Lord in the Temple which the Universal Church celebrates on Thursday, February 2nd, is the earliest event marking Jesus lifelong dedication to the divine plan for saving humanity; while yet an infant Jesus is given over to Father to be done with according to the divine will. This moment – the offering of Himself to the Father, will shape the reminder of His life. He begins that way. He will end it this way. Parishioners may bring their own candles to be blessed or obtained them in the sacristy before Mass. 
 


FEAST OF ST. BLAISE – PATRON OF THROAT ILLNESSES
Friday, February 3
RD

Masses at 5:30PM(Latin), 7:00PM(English) and 8:00PM(Polish) 
Many Catholics might remember Saint Blaise feast day because of the Blessing of the Throat that took place on this day. Two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as the blessing is said. St. Blaise’s protection of those with throat troubles apparently comes, form legend that a boy was brought to him who had fishbone stuck in his throat. The boy was about to die when St. Blaise healed him. Very few facts are known about St. Blaise. We believe he was a bishop of Sebastea in Armenia who was martyred under the reign of Licinius in early fourth century.
