The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe takes place each year on December 12. Our Lady inspires the faith of millions of people, especially those who live in Mexico and surrounding regions. Our Lady of Guadalupe after all appeared to St. Juan Diego on Tepeyac Hill in Mexico City in 1531.
In El Paso, Texas, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish (Ysleta Mission) will host events in celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe from December 3 to 12, 2015. These will include daily rosary prayers, novenas, an Advent Penance service, Las Mañanitas, Mass, a procession and a celebratory reception. Franciscan Friar Conventual Miguel Briseno will help lead these celebrations of faith. Friar Miguel is the pastor of Ysleta Mission. He has been with the parish for many years. A native of Artesia, New Mexico, he clearly enjoys helping people grow in their faith.
