THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE AND THE TILMA
We celebrate Saturday morning the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The next parish over has a large ministry to Mexican immigrants; we have almost none. So we will be very sedate in celebrating this feast with only Mass at 8:00 AM.

And finally, an outside procession in honor of this feast. It seems to me that this is the appropriate venue for devotions of this type. Celebrate Mass first, then process outside for this sort of wonderful devotions. Makes me feel like I'm in Napoli again. We Napolitanos know how to do this well also!
