our-lady-of-guadalupeCOME JOIN US! MONDAY, DECEMBER 12TH, 2016 The Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe Our Lady of Guadalupe (Spanish: Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe) is the title of the Blessed Virgin Mary who appeared to Juan Diego in December 1531. The Virgin arranged flowers in Juan’s tilma, or cloak, and when Juan Diego opened his cloak before Archbishop Zumárraga on December 12th, on the fabric was a marvelous portrait of herself. This miraculous image has proved to be ageless, and is kept in the shrine built in her honor, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City and is the most visited Catholic pilgrimage site in the world, and the world’s third most-visited sacred site. In honor of the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Knights of Columbus Council #3449 is sponsoring the celebration on Monday, December 12, 2016 at St. Barnabas Church. There will be a Mass at 8:00am to be followed by a reception at the Hall. Also, another Mass will be held at 5:30pm to be followed by a procession of the Our Lady of Guadalupe icon in the church premises. The event will culminate with a reception dinner at the Parish Hall. Please come and join us!
