On Sunday morning, after the 8 a.m. Mass, attendees will be able to be part of the traditional procession around the neighborhood. That same day, Dec. 12, the Shrine will offer Masses every hour starting at 5 a.m. until 7 p.m. All masses will be celebrated with live mariachi bands. There will be music bands, folk dancers (matachines), food and more to celebrate the patroness of the Americas.   

Every year, thousands of faithful gather at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church as a sign of their devotion to Mary and celebrate her apparitions to Saint Juan Diego in 1531. Don’t miss this great opportunity to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe by visiting Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Shrine in Denver and participating in this beautiful celebration.
