Next Class – Our Lady of Guadalupe

You have undoubtedly noticed the beautiful statute of our Blessed Mother we recently obtained at Holy Family in Marshall.  This statute is of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  We will be learning about the story of this image, and how Our Lady brings us closer to Christ and each other as well.

A special note, please do not wait in the hall way for class to begin.  Just come straight into the Church and meet where we always meet in the front of the church.  This week, I ask that you sit a few rows back so you can see the statue during class.

Again, please watch the following video to help get you better prepared.
