Burlington Community Candlemas Celebration
A community group in Burlington will host a celebration of Candlemas on February 2 at 4 p.m. at North End Studios. The Rev. Sherry Osborn of the Episcopal Church in Vermont will bless the candles at the ceremony.
The Burlington Candlemas celebration began 30 years ago, says Victoria Fraser, who began the tradition at Christ Church Presbyterian in Burlington. “It is a group that includes everyone: church-goers, as well as people who don’t go to church, or have an interest in Christianity or church,” says . “It is oriented toward bringing an increased meaning to the experience of Christmas and the completion of the Christmas season through a deeper relationship with the images of the stories, nature, and poetry.”
Our 2020 Convention will soon be scheduled please stay tuned for further information.
