Our Lady of Loreto, December 10
The feast of our Lady of Loreto, the Virgin of Nazareth, has a special significance for our community. The Holy House of Nazareth in Loreto, Italy was transferred there according to legend by angels to protect it from being destroyed by the Muslims. The statue in our Advent weathe is a replica of the statue at this shrine. May our Lady of Nazareth, Patroness of the Unborn, help of sick and dying, refuge of sinners, and loving guide for all families, pray for all us!
