With two processions that will leave different points, masses and the customary trip to the Island of Scorpions, in Chapala they are ready to celebrate the Virgin of Guadalupe this Thursday, December 12.
In the Parish of San Francisco de Asís there will be a mass at 7 and 8 in the morning, then the departure to the Island of the Scorpions at 10 in the morning, with a pilgrim image of the Virgin of Tepeyac.
A Mass will be officiated on Isla de Los Alacranes at 12 noon and then return to Chapala, to continue with the procession of “inditos” that will take place on Francisco I. Madero Avenue.
The procession will leave at 5 p.m. from the Seven-Eleven store and will cover the entire Francisco I. Madero Avenue, to end in the Parish with a mass at 6 p.m.
On the other hand, in the Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe there will be mornings at 6 in the morning, then Mass at 7 in the morning and one more for all the sick at 12 noon.
The pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Guadalupe will begin at 4 in the afternoon, on Francisco I. Madero Avenue, at the junction with Privada Zaragoza, where the gas station is.
The pilgrimage will end with a thanksgiving Mass at 5 p.m., then with various cultural events starting at 6 p.m. and burning the castle at 10 p.m.
488 years ago, the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe was printed in the humble tilma of the now Santo Juan Diego at dawn on December 12, 1531, I feel cause for celebration throughout the Mexican Republic.
