Marking the presentation of Jesus in the Temple 40 days after his birth, the Candlemas tradition is an ancient one. With this in mind, the service will use music, vestments and symbols, which reflect a medieval celebration.
Schola Cantorum, men’s liturgical vocal ensemble, and Wind in the Woods, an instrumental group that performs on early instruments such as recorders, krummhorns and percussion, will provide the music. Pre-service music will begin at 7:45 p.m. Anders Tune, pastor to the university, will be the liturgist and preacher.
Candles for use in Weaver Chapel during the coming year will be blessed as part of the procession. Those wishing to bring candles from home for blessing are welcome to do so.
