OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CELEBRATION
On the second Sunday of Advent, December 8, 2013, the combined parishes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Margaret Mary held their fifth annual celebration in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas with over 600 parishioners in attendance. It started with a procession from Saint Margaret Mary to OLMC for Mass and Rosary then concluded the festivities in the Parish Institute with wonderful homemade delicacies and ethnic dances. For the first time, Radio Maria came to broadcast the Mass live over the internet around the world. We congratulate the Guadalupano Committee headed by leaders Fermina Gutierrez and Reyna Cortes for their dedication and hard work in making this event such a success every year.
