Our Lady of Guadalupe Feast Day
Please join us on Wednesday, December 11 for Matachinas in the Marian Garden at 5:00 PM, followed by a procession which starts at 5:30 PM. The procession concludes at the doors of the church where a tri-lingual Mass will be held in Our Lady of Guadalupe’s honor. Following the Mass, all are invited to join us in the Great Hall for a brief play in Spanish on the Guadalupe story and then a meal. The dinner is open to everyone and includes tamales and other Mexican favorites. The meal will reflect the multicultural community of St. Michael.
We invite all parishioners to join us for some or all of these festivities, helping us celebrate Our Lady together as a unified faith community.
