The miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a 4′ x 6′ exact digital replica of the original miraculous image left on St Juan DIego’s cloak. The Rector of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Msgr Diego Monroy Ponce, blessed the image for the mission of promoting sanctity of the family, solidarity of the Church in America, a culture of life and a civilization of love. It will be shown for public veneration with liturgical (or devotional) services. Bring your family!

“Teens Using Drugs: What To Know and What To Do” is a free, ongoing, two-part series. Part 1 provides information on how to recognize and understand adolescent substance abuse.
