In the spirit of the Holy Family of Nazareth, the mission of Our Lady of Guadalupe parish is to be a humble, bilingual, pro-life, pro-family Catholic Community, joyfully announcing the Gospel. We welcome all to religious education in the fullness of Truth entrusted to the Church. We invite all to celebrate with reverence and unity the real presence of Christ in the rites of our Liturgy. We call our members to the humble obedience of faith and to sacrificial service for the sake of building up the Body of Christ.
Year of Mercy
Pope Francis has proclaimed an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy for the Church. The Holy Year will open on December 8, 2015, on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. Pope Francis has proclaimed this to be “a time when the witness of believers might grow strong and more effective.” From the sin of Adam and Eve, God’s desire has always been to be reunited with us against the pains of evil in which we live. Having been forced to face the severity of sin, God will always respond with the fullness of mercy… and a love without any limitations for whoever truly seeks forgiveness. Pope Francis “…will have the joy of opening the Holy Door on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. On that day, the Holy Door will become a Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope.” Misericordiae Vultus: Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy
Opening the Year of Mercy and inaugurating the Mercy Door we will have a trilingual Mass on Tuesday December 8th at 3:00pm. Mass will be followed by bilingual Divine Mercy Chaplet and 24 hours of confession in the sacristies from 4:30pm until 4:30pm on Wednesday.
