DENISON -- This is some video of Catholic Hispanics in Denison celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron saint of heavily Catholic Mexico and is a key figure for immigrants in this area of that faith.

The event in the relatively new Denison Catholic church, in which the Rev. Paul Kelly holds Masses in both Spanish and English, involves spectacularly colorful costumes and these Aztec dances with historical meaning to the parishioners.

The video here was shot by La Prensa editor Lorena Lopez and Iowa Independent fellow Douglas Burns. It was edited by Jon Sampson.
