Our Candlemas celebration was held on Monday (2nd February), from 7 am. There was singing, and then candles were made in the earth and lit.
Thank you to the many people (over 100!) who braved the early hour and the cold weather to celebrate with us and share the middle-eastern style breakfast of bread with date syrup and creme fraiche… and hot drinks!
Thank you also to Chris and Nadia, who have provided the lovely photos of Candlemas, below.
