On December 12, 2013, the Catholic Church throughout the world celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas. The feast celebrates the appearances of Mary to Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531. This is a day of special significance to Mexican Catholics and many other people of Latino hertiage. In Pittsburgh, a special celebration, including a Mass, took place at St. Paul Cathedral. Thanks to Sisters Roberta Grzelak, Ana Lydia Sonera Matos, Wendolyn López Santos, and Karina Conrad for representing our community at the liturgy.
