On December 12, 2017 the Assumptionists religious provided 87 prayer services and Masses to celebrate the most important religious event for the Mexican Catholics.  Twenty five Assumptionist brothers and fathers have gathered in the Mexico City communities of San Andreas, Casa Manuel and Emperatriz visiting churches, chapels and private homes from 8 am till 8 pm serving thousands of people. Celebration included all day fireworks, music, dancing and meals. During the same time millions of pilgrims have traveled to the Our Lady of Guadalupe Basilica in Mexico City. Father Alex Castro, Brother Dagoberto and Tomasz Jaster had an opportunity to visit and observe the preparations at the Basilica on the eve of the feast. They were struck by the number of people gathering in the areas, which were setting up tents, blankets or were just sleeping on the ground in order to be present at the Basilica on the day of the feast. Mexicans are very grateful for the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe for their country and love to express their love to her very generously.
