12 Guadalupana March
in New York City
Picture < > Next
Mexican immigrants arrive in New York City, running through Central Park
and out onto 59th Street and Madison Avenue, carrying the torch of the
Virgin of Guadalupe. The pilgrimage from Mexico to New York began at the
Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City on October 9, 2005,
and ended at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City on December 12.
The purpose of the pilgrimage was to celebrate the presence of 25 million
Mexicans in the United States, and urge them to renew their faith in the
Virgin of Guadalupe as a way of rededicating themselves to the ideals
of justice, equality and peace. The pilgrimage was organized by the Tepeyac
Association, a network of Mexican organizations in New York City.
