Bienaventurada Virgen María de Guadalupe
Our Lady of Guadalupe

All are welcome to our Parish Celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Tuesday 12 December 2023. Mass will be celebrated at 7:00pm in the parish Church.

This feast recalls the apparitions of the Blessed Virgen Mary at the hill of Tepeyac from 9–12 December 1531 to the native convert, Juan Diego; known to the Aztecs as Tecoatlaxope (or de Guadalupe in Spanish), meaning “she will crush the serpent of stone;” declared patroness of the Americas by Pope Pius XII and raised to the rank of Feast for all the countries of the Americas by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, 25 March 1999.

Dios, Padre de misericordia,
que has puesto a este pueblo tuyo bajo la especial protectión
de la siempre Virgen María de Guadalupe, Madres de tu Hijo,

y buscar el progreso de los pueblos por caminos de justicia y de paz.

y es Dios por los siglos de los siglos.

O God, Father of mercies, Who placed Your people
under the singular protection of Your Son’s most holy Mother,
grant that all who invoke the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe,
may seek with ever more lively faith the progress of peoples
in the ways of justice and of peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
