From Staff Reports

Plans for the Dec. 5 Guadalupe Procession and Mass in Trenton have been changed because of an increasing number of COVID-19 cases.

The event was to mark the closing of the fifth annual celebration of Las Antorchas Guadalupanas – Torches of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which this year has as its theme, “A Season of Remembrance.” Among the changes are:

  • The procession around Trenton and Cathedral Square, in which a small number of designated followers would accompany the Blessed Sacrament and statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, has been canceled.
  • The Mass that will be celebrated in St. Mary of the Assumption Cathedral, 151 North Warren Street, is not open to the public. The Mass is open to the 17 torch captains and their families along with several key diocesan staff and Mass organizers. The Mass will be preceded by a procession of the torches into the Cathedral beginning at 10 a.m. followed by a remembrance service in which the names all deceased that had been submitted to the diocesan Virtual Wall of Remembrance will be read.
  • The Mass, to be celebrated by Msgr. Joseph Roldan, Cathedral rector, will be livestreamed with links in both Spanish and in English.
