    Evensong and Blessing of Candles

    sunday, 1 february 2015

    1feb1Candlemas marks the completion of forty days since the birth of Jesus, when Mary and Joseph took the child to the Temple in Jerusalem. The requirement in Levitical law was for Mary to be 'cleansed', the completion of her purification following the birth of a male child. Until that day, she could touch no holy thing nor enter the sanctuary. Yet on seeing the holy family, Simeon praised God and acclaimed the infant as 'the light to enlighten the nations' and the prophet Anna gave thanks and proclaimed him her Redeemer. The image of Christ as the Light has led to the celebration of light countering darkness, with candles often taking a central place in the observance.

    1feb2The Cathedral’s stock of candles for use in 2015 will be blessed. Individuals are welcome to bring their own candles to be blessed on this occasion, for use in the home later throughout the year.

    The Service is sung to plainsong, beginning at the Font for the Blessing of Candles and moving in candle-lit procession to the Quire for Evensong.

    Time: 5.00pm.

    Venue: The Cathedral.  For location and parking information, please click here.

    CHORAL EVENSONG – Waitangi and Accession

    sunday, 8 february 2015

    NZ poppy

    This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign, in which New Zealand troops suffered causalties of 2, 721 killed and 4, 752 wounded. The troops included New Zealanders of Māori, Pākehā, and Pacifica backgrounds.

    Here in Australia, the Australians who perished at Gallipoli will be, rightly, remembered on ANZAC day. We take this opportunity, on the Sunday nearest to Waitangi Day, to remember the New Zealander ANZACs in their own right. The New Zealand flag will be honoured, the New Zealand National Anthem sung (in Māori and in English), and Last Post & Reveille sounded.

    Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of New Zealand, Australia, and 14 other democratic nations, acceded on 6 February 1952. This year Her Majesty reaches the 63rd anniversary of Accession. Queen Victoria was the only other monarch of New Zealand (and of the other 15 realms) to have reigned as long. We take this opportunity, on the Sunday nearest to Accession Day, to give thanks for her example, public service, and dutifulness as Queen of New Zealand and Australian and as Head of the Commonwealth.

    The Service is followed by a drinks reception on the Parvis to which all are welcome. A toast to The Queen is given.

    Time: 5.00pm.

    Venue: The Cathedral. For location and parking information, please click here.
