'Reign Day' to commemorate feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Louisiana

.- Sacred Heart Apostolate, a global movement for renewing societies by centering families on the love of God incarnated in the Heart of Christ, will be hosting a family fun day and a concert for teens in Lafayette, Louisiana in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas. The event, which reaches out to Catholics of all ages, will benefit  the DesOrmeaux Foundation Maternity Home.

“The entire day focuses on family, faith, and fun in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe,” said Donna Fox, Fundraising Chairperson for the Sacred Heart Apostolate, who is also chairperson for the event.

“Our Lady of Guadalupe is the only depiction of Mary pregnant with the infant Jesus. This is why we have decided to have proceeds also go to helping the DesOrmeaux Foundation Maternity Home in Lafayette, which helps pregnant mothers in their time of need,” she added.

According to a press release, the day of celebration will begin with Mass celebrated by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., President and Founder of Ignatius Productions and  EWTN television and radio host as well as a procession in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Featured “Reign Day” attractions include face painting, a fun jump, a show by Catholic entertainer Rob Evans “the Donut Man,' and a rock concert in the afternoon for teens, featuring the popular Louisiana band “L'Angelus” as  well as the Christian band “Ayleron.”

“The family fun event is really all about celebrating and sharing Christ with the families.” Fox explained. “We are trying to keep Christ in Christmas during this busy season.”

“We are excited that faith and pro-life values are being incorporated into the nighttime concert for teens with a game focusing on teen morals and pro-life values during the time between the band performances,” said Brenda DesOrmeaux, founder and president of the DesOrmeaux Foundation.
