Fr. "Gus" will address how Our Lady of Guadalupe is at the forefront of the immigration debate in our country. Through her apparition and love for her children, Our Lady of Guadalupe provides a unique lens by which we can understand more fully how immigrants, and those residing in the United States, can live together in peace, as we are all her children. The talk will explore how her appearance, based on the actual historical events of the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico, endures as a valuable and divine lesson in our lives today. 

This event will also be hosting a luncheon located at the Chancellor's Suite of the University Center at 12:30 p.m., as well as a Spanish Mass at the Immaculate Conception Chapel at 3:00 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. Reservation required for luncheon by Monday, March 12.
