Our Lady of Guadalupe

December 12 is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas, and the National Day of Prayer and Solidarity with Indigenous Persons. 

The Diocese of Hamilton has invited the Honourable Graydon Nicholas, Chancellor of Saint Thomas University, New Brunswick, and former Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick to offer a presentation on this day.  We will reflect together on the significance of the appearance of Our Lady to Juan Diego, an Indigenous man in Guadalupe, Mexico.

Graydon Nicolas’ message will encourage our efforts as a community of faith toward reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters.

You can watch this presentation streamed live via the Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King YouTube page, beginning at 7:00pm this evening. 

Our Lady of Guadalupe, be with us as we pray and work for Reconciliation, Healing and Hope.
