Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

CHARLOTTE — Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Charlotte celebrated its patronal feast day, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, with a big bash at Bojangles’ Coliseum on Monday, Dec. 11, the eve of the feast day.

The colorful celebration began with recitation of the Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The event featured traditional Aztec dances, retelling of the story of Our Lady’s appearance to St. Juan Diego, Marian hymns by Our Lady of Guadalupe’s parish choir, a Latin American flag parade, a procession in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and at the end of the night, singing of “Las Mañanitas,” a traditional serenade to Mary.

Vincentian Father Vincent Finnerty, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, offered Mass.
