Catholics in Abbotsford arrived at St. James Parish for a special celebration of Candlemas on Saturday, Feb. 2.

The annual observance, also known as the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, involves the blessing of candles at Mass. The community also held a First Saturday service and a potluck supper later in the day.
