A Fabulous Guadalupe Celebration

In the spirit of old Mexico, our parish will remember Our Lady of Guadalupe tomorrow with public recognition of our devotion.

Fr. Zendejas has been out of town and did not have time to confirm plans in time for last Sundays' bulletin. So, TENTATIVELY, according to reliable sources who have talked to Fr., here is the plan:

After Mass at 8 a.m., parishioners will drive in procession behind a statue of Our Lady to two different Mexican restaurants that will have erected Guadalupe altars. My sources have heard that it will be Garcia's and Frontera's, but this is not confirmed. Fr. Zendejas will bless the altars, then we will return to the parish hall for games, a potluck feast, Mexican dancing, and live Mariachi band music. Festivities will end by 2 p.m.
