A Day of Reflection for Men & Women
Since her appearance to St. Juan Diego in 1531 in Mexico, devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe has spread throughout the Americas. Today she is recognized as Patroness of the Unborn and the Right to Life movement. Fr. Sparough opens up this powerful story to reflect on the “seamless garment” of Catholic social teaching holding all human life sacred from conception through natural death.
Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
