Our Lady of Guadalupe Celebrates Christmas and New Site

Our Lady of Guadalupe Pastor, Father Israel Mago is looking forward  to the completion of a new church in 2012 being built at NW 25th St. and 117 Ave.  A celebratory mass held there on Dec. 12 with retired Archbishop Agustin Roman as celebrant confirms that commitment.  A rain storm failed to deter the many hundreds who gathered for the special occasion featuring a performance by mariachis and testimonials on miracles associated with the Blessed Mother, the Virgin of Guadalupe.

More than 500 parishioners of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doral gathered at Doral Charter High School for Christmas midnight mass on Dec. 24.  This was the first time since the church was created that parishioners could attend the ceremony at their own mass venue.

The following week, the three kings made an appearance to participate in the mass celebrating the Epiphany as a surprise for the congregation.  At Our Lady of Guadalupe, there is always something new to bring the congregation closer to God and to one another.   For more information on the only Catholic Church in Doral, visit www.olgfl.org <http://www.olgfl.org/> .
