Zapopan Basilica closes for ten days


The faithful from Zapopan will have to approach their parish to find out if the prayer spaces will remain open.

The Zapopan Basilica will be closed from today until March 30 as a measure before COVID-19 . Fray Armando, communicator from the Zapopan Basilica, explains that the measure is also taken because 70 friars live in the compound, about half of them are elderly and on average the religious compound receives between five and 10,000 faithful daily.

Closing their doors includes closing masses and their prayer facilities. In the case of the parishes of the municipality of Zapopan, Fray Armando points out that the masses will also be behind closed doors and that the faithful should approach their parish to find out if it will remain open for prayer .

Fray Armando invites you to follow the Masses through the Facebook pages, " Zapopan Basilica " and the Order of Franciscan Minors " OFM JAL ".
