Celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe, honoring the Virgin Mary, is one of the most important feast days of the year for Catholics of Mexican descent, a celebration of faith and national identity. Special Masses were held this year in the Diocese of Nashville, but festivities were restricted by the pandemic. Parishioners at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Nashville attended one of five Masses celebrated at the church on the feast day, Saturday, Dec. 12. The parish held so many Masses to spread out the crowds attending Mass on the popular feast day. Bishop J. Mark Spalding  celebrated one of the Masses.
