On Sunday, October 11, 2015, Bishop Felipe Estévez dedicated the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche at the Mission Nombre de Dios. The mass was open to the public. Our Lady of La Leche is very special to me and many.
The Prince of Peace Votive Church at the Mission has been under renovation since February 2015, with 2,500 square feet added to the church, which now serves as the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche. A chapel has been added to the shrine dedicated to Prince of Peace and the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima.
A new altar configuration features a large statue of Our Lady of La Leche and smaller statues depicting St. Joseph, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Katherine Drexel, and St. Kateri Tekawitha, all of whom have been influential in the history of St. Augustine, America's first parish.
October 11 was approved in 2012 by the Vatican as an annual diocesan feast-day to honor Our Lady of La Leche.
