Nuestra Señora De Guadalupe – 2017

Hoy 12 de Diciembre  celebramos un aniversario mas de las apariciones de la Virgen de Guadalupe,  en Mexico a San Juan Diego en cuyo ayate  quedo plasmada su imagen como prueba de que ella era realmente quien se le apareció a Juan Diego.

Hoy casi 500 años de aquel 12 de Diciembre 1531 la comunidad Católica de San Juan Bautista en Longmont Colorado se reunió para honrar a la Santísima Virgen de Guadalupe, patrona de Mexico, Emperatriz de America, en su día.

Empezamos, a las cinco de la mañana con una solemne misa en su honor.  Hubo un convivio en el cual se les ofreció un desayuno a los asistentes.

En la tarde la celebración continuo con una peregrinación con rosario, alabanzas y de danza de matachines.

Después de la peregrinación, se llevo acabo una representación de las apariciones en el templo.

Termino la fiesta con una misa y después se ofreció una cena a todos los participantes.

Cave señalar que la fiesta se llevo acabo gracias a la participación de los grupos de voluntarios de la comunidad.

Family Events

Dec 2017 – Family Potluck with Saint Nicholas

The Knights family potluck was filled with excellent dishes, joy and Saint Nicholas! The food ranged from Dan’s smoked barbecue pulled pork sandwiches to Mac and Cheese and the deserts were plentiful.  It was a great night of fellowship, family and Christmas Joy.

Saint Nicholas visited our potluck and shared the history of this great saint. He told us the origins of Saint Nicholas in Asia Minor and how, when he lived and served as Bishop, helped a family get money enough for a dowry for the three daughters of a very poor family.  With help from some excellent budding actors we got to see the whole story unfold before our eyes.  Finally Saint Nicholas read ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ and astute children raised their hand as they noted all the references to dear old Saint Nicholas.

After story time, we all lined up to take pictures with Saint Nicholas. Knights and kids alike all sat next to jolly Saint Nicholas took photos to remember this joyful night.
