Diocesan Mass in Honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe - December 8, 2006

San Juan DiegoEvery year, the diocese celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with processions and evening prayer in Spanish.

Because this year's celebration falls on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Friday, December 8, 2006, we will celebrate Mass in Spanish in honor of the Virgin Mary present to all her children in so many different ways. This Mass will take place at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (2020 East San Antonio Street, San Jose). The procession of parishes begins at 6:00p and the Mass at 7:00p.

Here's an article in Spanish by Lupita Vital, the Associate for Hispanic Catechesis for the diocese, about celebrating Advent with Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Read about how the Diocese of San Jose celebrates Our Lady of Guadalupe.

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.
