December 9 – Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass and Procession

December 9 – Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass and Procession

This year, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (December 12) is superseded by the Third Sunday of Advent.  Therefore, the Parish will instead have a Sung Mass and Procession to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Thursday, December 9 at 6 pm at St. Vincent Ferrer.  This is the Feast day of St. Juan Diego, the Mexican peasant to whom the Blessed Virgin appeared on Tepeyac Hill in Mexico City.  Canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002, Juan Diego is the first Catholic Saint indigenous to the Americas.

The Triptych located in the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Vincent Ferrer was installed on December 15, 2015. Learn about this important work or art here.
