The Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, or Candlemas, celebrates the infant Christ as the new light coming into the world. The principal celebration of the Oriel year, it affords us an opportunity to mark the dedication of the College to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

All members of the Oriel community are welcome to this service, but please make sure to arrive early to secure a seat. The Choir will sing Wood’s Collegium regale and Senex puerum portabat by Byrd.
