The Community is under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe, finding confidence in the same words that she spoke to St. Juan Diego: “Am I not here who am your mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Are you not in the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else that you need?”

The friars, out of devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe,
gather annually to renew their vows every year on the vigil of her feast day, Dec. 12.
