Church Celebrates Fest Day; Releases New CD

Children in native Mexican costumes participate in mass.

On the Dec. 12 Feast Day for Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church of Doral held a massive bi-lingual celebration at the Firefighters Memorial Building in Doral.

A standing room only crowd was moved as they passed through the archway entrance beautifully adorned with flowers by industrious and faithful parishioners who donated their time and talent to honor the Virgen of Guadalupe. Children came dressed in native Mexican garb to participate in the mass that concluded with a performance by Mariachis. As an added bonus, the congregation heard for the first time a new CD written specifically for the parish, “My Guadalupe”.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church is an incredibly large congregation in Doral that has become a parish community despite not yet having a church building. Thanks to very strong church ministries, the congregation looks to raise the needed funds, very often in creative ways.

Most recently, a few talented folks from the Music Ministry produced the aforementioned CD with the song specifically about the Church. The song was written by Carlos Puchi with arrangements by Latin Grammy winner Paul Hoyle and graphic design by Yeshica Yanes.

On the CD, the song about the Church is performed in both English and Spanish and is available for a donation of $10. Thus far, funds raised from this CD exceed $2,000.

Fr. Israel Mago, Church pastor, announced the church had collected more than 2,300 toys during the Christmas season as donations for the less fortunate in Homestead and other areas of great need.
