ORLANDO | Caravana Guadalupana, makes its pilgrimage from 18 parishes to St. James Cathedral one day prior to the anniversary of Our Lady’s apparition to Juan Diego in Tepeyac, Mexico, Dec. 11.
The caravan idea bore fruit for Lisette Saint-Hilaire during the pandemic. After years of directing a re-enactment of the story in parishes and near Lake Eola, motivated by memories of her and her deceased brother playing the roles of the Virgin Mary and Juan Diego respectively, COVID required another option.
Participants are encouraged to pray the rosary on their way to the St. James Cathedral in Orlando. Upon arriving, families pause before the Blessed Sacrament for a blessing.
