OUR LADY OF CANDELARIA


Our Lady of Candelaria is the Patroness of the Presentation of the Child Jesus Parish. Also known as Our Lady of Candles or Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, this title of Mary commemorates her ritual purification during the Presentation of Jesus and hence her feast day fittingly falls on the same date as the Feast of the Presentation which falls on February 2. The Presentation of the Lord is also known traditionally as Candlemas, Feast of the Purification of the Virgin, and the Meeting of the Lord.

VISION-MISSION


The crafting of the Vision, Mission, and Core Values began during the Parish Pastoral Assembly on August 25, 2012 when church workers were asked to envision the parish as an ideal church. This then began a series of consultations that involved visiting the 28 different enclaves within the parish boundaries. On October 28, 2013 a draft was presented during the Pastoral Assembly. Finally, on November 23, 2013 the final version of the Mission, Vision, and Core Values were presented to the parish community. Read more…

  • Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

    All day
    2016-05-29

    The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is also known as the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, which translates from Latin to “Body of Christ.” This feast originated in France in the mid thirteenth century and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Urban IV in 1264.  This feast calls us to focus on two manifestations of the Body of Christ, the Holy Eucharist and the Church. The primary purpose of this feast is to focus our attention on the Eucharist. The opening prayer at Mass calls our attention to Jesus’ suffering and death and our worship of Him, especially in the Eucharist.

  • The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

    All day
    2016-05-31

    The Feast of the Visitation recalls to us the following great truths and events: The visit of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin Elizabeth shortly after the Annunciation; the cleansing of John the Baptist from original sin in the womb of his mother at the words of Our Lady’s greeting; Elizabeth’s proclaiming of Mary—under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost—as Mother of God and “blessed among women”; Mary’s singing of the sublime hymn, Magnificat (“My soul doth magnify the Lord”) which has become a part of the daily official prayer of the Church. The Visitation is frequently depicted in art, and was the central mystery of St. Francis de Sales’ devotions.
