We had a lovely celebration of Candlemas on 2nd February. 

We began with the Blessing of Candles and then processed into St Mary Magdalen’s Chapel for a Sung Eucharist.  The Revd Andrew Allen, chaplain of Exeter College in Oxford was our president and preacher, giving us a stimulating and challenging sermon.  Afterwards we enjoyed coffee with all those who had gathered to be with us. 

The photo below was taken by one of our guests, and shows our icon of The Presentation surrounded by snowdrops from the garden.
