Beverly Hills, California – An annual Mariachi Mass for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, introduced six years ago, will be celebrated at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills, California. The only Catholic church in Beverly Hills, this landmark church was the setting for the 1954 film, “A Star Is Born,” starring Judy Garland.
The Mass will take place on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 7:30 PM with a reception to follow in the parish hall. The church is located at 504 North Roxbury Drive, Beverly Hills, California, 90210.

Named Patroness of the Americas by Pope John Paul II, Our Lady of Guadalupe is an important part of daily life in the American continent, “from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, from the Pacific to the Atlantic.”
Second only to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Mexico City’s Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most visited churches in the world, attracting millions of pilgrims a year who flock to catch a glimpse of a simple tilma made of maguey fiber which has remarkably lasted for over 500 years. Imprinted upon it is a miraculous image of the Virgin Mary neither painted nor manipulated by human hands – a scientific marvel.
