Catholic church hosts annual Our Lady of Guadalupe processional
Every year for over a decade, members of St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Madras hosts an Our Lady of Guadalupe procession. The procession travels from Culver to Madras, walking along Highway 361, the Culver Highway.
The crowd, over 60 people from kids to seniors, began in the cold and rainy darkness on Sunday, Dec. 12. The processional followed a trailer holding a large tapestry of the Virgin Mary. The participants follow the trailer, holding signs, icons and statues of the Virgin Mary the entire 8.6 mile journey. They participate in songs, as well as prayers and Rosaries during the walk.
