Liturgy in Honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe – December 6, 2013

Every year, the diocese celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with processions and mass in Spanish. This annual celebration takes place this year on Friday, December 16, 2013, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (2020 East San Antonio Street, San Jose). The procession of parishes begins at 6:00p and Mass at 7:00p.

Parishes are invited to participate in the procession to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Parishes near and far have walked the distance between their parish home and Our Lady of Guadalupe parish. Some parishes also gather at a closer location and begin their procession from there. However way you do it, it’s always a wonderful sight to see people of faith walking together. Parishes should plan to arrive at the church between 6:00p and 7:00p.
