Ruben Mendoza, a Shrine volunteer, attended the 2016 “Dia de la Familia Latina” (2016 Latino Family Day) at St. Thomas Academy in the twin cities on behalf of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Saturday, August 13th.
An estimated 3,000 members of Latino Community attended to take part in Holy Mass, games, a soccer tournament, and traditional Mexican cuisine. Ruben was able to reach out to many families who have yet to make their first pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin!
