Guadalupe Celebration

The Festival of the Virgin of Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12 by Mexicans throughout the world and commemorates the storied appearance of the Virgin Mary to the Indian Juan Diego in 1531, marking the beginning of Christianity in Mexico. At St. Theresa's Catholic Church in Leeds, Alabama, the observance of this festival ensures a level of cultural continuity for young Mexican-Americans and a fellowship opportunity for all members of a diverse congregation.
