Our Lady of Guadalupe


The primary image of Mary in our new church will be a tapestry of Our Lady of Guadalupe, by the artist John Nava. His most famous works are the tapestries in the Los Angeles Cathedral (one image of which is St. Juan Diego; another image is of St. Bridget of Sweden). Fr. Kerns had admired a similar tapestry at the Trappist Abbey of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Lafayette, Oregon, which inclined him to procure this one for our church.
