Dedication of the Parish of St. Josemaría in Santa Fe, Mexico

In 2002, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, Archbishop of Mexico City, asked Opus Dei if it could take charge of a new parish in Santa Fe that would be dedicated to St. Josemaría. This district includes both modern Mexico City and an area practically ignored by progress and prosperity.

Following the blessing of the first stone in 2005, the parish community began attending Holy Mass in provisional facilities. Meanwhile a group of parishioners started seeking the necessary resources for the construction of the church.

On July 28th of this year, the Cardinal invited the Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarría, to the dedication ceremony for the new parish church. Also participating in the ceremony were Auxiliary Bishop Carlos Briseño of Mexico City, and Archbishop Emilio Carlos Berlie Belaunzaran of Yucatan, together with hundreds of people who attend activities at the parish.

During the ceremony Bishop Echevarría placed a relic of St. Josemaría beneath the altar.
