We are looking forward to welcoming Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas, the Philippines, and of the Pro-Life Movement to our Rosary Shrine church. A “relic image”, which is a replica of the sacred tilma of St Juan Diego that has been touched to the actual miraculous image in Mexico City, has been obtained from Mexico. It has been placed in a replica of the frame that you see in this photo, and it will be permanently installed in the Assumption Chapel for veneration.
We welcome the “Pope’s ambassador”, Archbishop Edward Adams, who will celebrate a Solemn Sung Mass on the 12th of December at 6pm, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. After the Mass, he will bless the relic image in its new location, and then he will attend a “Mexican fiesta” reception in the parish hall which will be open to everyone. Do come and meet him.
You’re invited to come and welcome Our Lady, and also to welcome Archbishop Adam, who is new to the United Kingdom.
