Saint Juan Diego’s Feast Day Mass on 9th December 2017 at St Joseph & the Holy Child Church, Bedford (home to the Shrine of the Miraculous Relic Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe) was both joyful and colourful. The well-attended Mass was concelebrated by Canon Seamus and Father Roy.
The very beautiful vestments, which feature stunning hand-painted embroideries of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Castilian roses, were anonymously donated.
An iconic portrait of St. Juan Diego graced the side of the altar.
Cannon Seamus narrated the miraculous story of Juan Diego in the homily. The humility and beauty of the story was uplifting.
