CHARLOTTE — St. Thomas Aquinas Parish Hispanic Ministry in Charlotte invites everyone to celebrate its first Mass in Spanish in Honor of the Divine Child starting at 7 p.m. July 20.
Devotion to the Divine Child began in Bogotá, Colombia. The Infant Jesus is dressed in a pink tunic with His loving arms open wide to love and comfort us.
The Mass will be celebrated by Father Gabriel Carvajal of St. Aloysius Church in Hickory. He will have a special blessing for the children.
Please dress them or yourself in pink. After Mass, the parish will continue the celebration, sharing delicious Colombian dishes in Aquinas Hall. St. Thomas Aquinas Church is located at 1400 Suther Road, Charlotte.
