Winter Festival ‘Candelmas’ is January 30th, 31st
A candle’s but a simple thing,
It starts with just a bit of string.
But dipped or rolled with patient hand
It gathers was upon the strand.
Until complete and snowy white
It gives at last a lovely light.
Life seems so like that bit of string;
Each deed we do a simple thing.
Yet day by day upon life’s strand
We work with patient heart and hand.
It gathers joy, makes dark days bright
And gives at last a lovely light.
On this day, the children will enjoy a day of candle dipping during class time. Parent volunteers will be helping the children throughout the day.
