Traveling image of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Luke through June 23

A traveling 4 foot-by-6 foot painting replicating the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe found on St. Juan Diego’s tilma or cloak is on display for veneration until June 23 at St. Luke the Evangelist Church, 7575 Holiday Drive East, in Indianapolis.

Our Lady of Guadalupe has been declared the patroness of the unborn, the Americas and the pro-life movement.

The image will be in Indianapolis during the beginning of the U.S. bishops’ Fortnight for Freedom, a period when Catholics are called to pray for religious freedom and the sanctity of life of the unborn. Both are adversely affected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) decision that all businesses and nearly all religious organizations be required to provide abortifacients, sterilizations and contraceptives in its employee health insurance plans.

The image will be located in the church sanctuary. It is available for veneration and prayer from 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

For more information about the image, log on to jkmi.wsiefusion.net/the-missionary-image. For more information about visiting the image at St. Luke the Evangelist Church, call 317-259-4373.
