Cruzada Guadalupana Dec. 10
October 17th, 2016

As in years past, the Cruzada Guadalupana, Dec. 10, is expected to draw more than 30,000 participant pilgrims in a march from All Souls Church in South San Francisco to St. Mary’s Cathedral, San Francisco. Bishop William J. Justice will send marchers on their way with a blessing at All Souls at 5:30 a.m. followed by the rosary.

The 12-mile walk will take almost six hours to reach the cathedral where at 2 p.m. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone will be principal celebrant and homilist of a Mass commemorating Our Lady of Guadalupe, whose feast is Dec. 12, and her importance to the church.

Pilgrims walk, pray the rosary, and perform Azteca dance while on route to the cathedral.

This is the 23rd anniversary of the event founded by Marta Garcia and Pedro Garcia in 1994.

The walk stops along the way for rest and refreshment at locations including Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, Holy Angels Parish, Colma, and St. John the Evangelist Parish, San Francisco.
