The Guadalupanas meets on the second Thursday of the month and attends Mass as a group on the second Sunday of each month. During the meetings, the rosary is prayed for special intentions and needs, as well as presenting a bouquet of roses to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Guadalupanas prepare for the feast day of Our Lady by praying a novena at Our Lady’s shrine. Per the group’s tradition, a mariachi band serenades “Mañanitas” to Our Lady in the early morning followed by a Mass. Following Mass, hot chocolate, coffee and Mexican cookies are shared with everyone.

Activities, Events, News, and Information
As you may already know, the funeral Mass for Jim Elia, will be on Tuesday, February, 6th at 10 am. There will be a reception immediately following the internment in the parish hall. The Funeral Ministry needs our assistance with the reception. We are providing the reception to Jim’s family in gratitude for his long years of service to our community. We are hoping that everyone would be willing to contribute a dish for the reception. No need for fancy—just comfort food for us to share as we support Jim’s family and remember Jim.. We are expecting about 150 guests to attend. Please fill in a need listed below if you will be able to assist in any way.
Food can be dropped off in the parish hall on Tuesday morning.
Since we are not able to use the ovens in the kitchen on Tuesday, for those of you who will be bringing a hot dish, please plan to bring it in a slow cooker or an insulated container to help us keep it warm.
Thank you and God Bless,
Norma & Jean
