Marian Encounter

Schedule for September 26th through September 29th.

Join us for the annual visit of Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos at St. Joseph Parish. She will be joining us from Thursday, September 26th through Sunday, September 29th. On Sunday, we will celebrate a special mass at 7:00 p.m. with Bishop Robert G. Casey to bid farewell to Our Lady of San Juan de Los Lagos as she moves on to her next Parish visit and to celebrate the formal enthronement of the image of Our Lady of Talpa that we were gifted from her Basilica in Talpa, to her new home at St. Joseph Parish. Please join us for this very special occasion.

A bit of history…

In 2017 we were very blessed to have the three “Reinas de Jalisco,” which refer to the three Sister Virgens, visit our parish at the same time. We had Our Lady of San Juan de Los Lagos, Our Lady del Rosario de Talpa and Our Lady de Zapopan.  At the conclusion of that visit, the Pastor of the Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Rosario de Talpa, from Talpa de Allende, Jalisco, Father Esteban Salazar Gonzalez gifted the image of Our Lady of Talpa to our Parish and left her with us after the visit. We were very honored and humbled to have received this wonderful blessing and this year we will be officially having the enthronement ceremony to set her into her new home.
