Sociedad Guadalupana

The Guadalupana organization was founded at Mission Dolores in 1972 under the auspices of Bishop Norman F. McFarland, then pastor of Mission Dolores Basilica.
The major event of the organization is the Mañanitas Mass in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the morning of December 12 at 5:00 am. The Bishop usually presides at this Mass, and music is provided by a group of mariachis, according to the Mexican tradition.  Also, as part of this tradition, only roses are used to decorate the church and thousands of rose petals are dropped from the cupola one hundred fifty feet above the congregation. The Mass is followed by a breakfast of Mexican tamales, hot chocolate, and sweet rolls.

Sociedad Guadalupana


This major event is preceded by several Sociedad fund raising social events throughout the year including a Spaghetti Dinner in June and a Halloween Dance in October.  Other fund raising efforts include bus tour trips to Reno and Lake Tahoe. Please see website and the weekly Sunday church bulletin for more details on these events throughout the year.  Meetings are held the first Sunday of the month after the 12 noon Mass.  All are welcome.
