Honoring Mary During Advent

Honoring Mary During Advent

As we prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus, it’s appropriate that we celebrate two significant feasts that honor Mary, his mother. The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated as a Holy Day of Obligation on December 8. We also celebrate the feasts of Saint Juan Diego (December 9) and Our Lady of Guadalupe (December 12). Find articles, activities, and videos about these celebrations in the links that follow:
