Park Street in Hartford was filled with color on Dec. 11 as people of all ages gathered at St. Anne-Immaculate Conception Church for a mile-long procession to pay homage to Our Lady of Guadalupe with costumes, songs, prayer and dance. The festive event was just one of the activities organized in Hartford over three days around the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Latinos paid similar homage to Our Lady of Guadalupe at other churches in the Archdiocese, as well. For the procession in Hartford, which ended at St. Peter Church, children dressed in costumes reflecting their rich heritage or re-enacting events associated with the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
