Hispanic Heritage Celebration

It is a very special time for Hispanics across Texoma. September 15th kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month and Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church is ready to celebrate.

All the events planned for the next month will bring the Hispanic culture and traditions alive in Wichita Falls.

Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church said all the money raised through the events go back into the church, to help the community and people in need.

The church has many programs in place to help those in need, like paying electric bills and buying medications. The church also offers a food pantry and a scholarship fund.

Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church invites anyone to walk through their doors.

Anastasio Perez, Deacon at Our Lady Of Guadalupe Church, commented, "It's open for everybody not just the Catholics or not just the Hispanics or the Anglos. It's for everybody and we welcome anybody who wants to come."

The church is in the process of renovations to keep up with the growing need. A new alter, pews, flooring and state of the art kitchen are in the works.
