The only public celebration in Georgia of Candlemass (Feast of the Purification) will be at St Francis de Sales Mableton. There will be the traditional blessing of candles and then a candle light procession followed by High Mass. If you bring candles to be blessed make sure your name is on them. Candles for the use of the parish for the year are blessed, also the Faithful have candles blessed for the year. They are used during storms, sick calls by the priest, Extreme Unction, family prayers, times of trouble,lighted after dusk on All Saints Day as well as other uses.
