Alfredo Olvera Ledezma professed his perpetual vows in Holy Cross in La Capilla de San Matías Apóstol in Guadalupe, Nuevo León on Saturday, September 6, 2008.  Father David Tyson, provincial of the Indiana Province, received his vows.

Alfredo was born in Ahuacatlán, San Luis Potosi.  Father Fred Schmidt, CSC was pastor there for many years.  Fr. Schmidt witnessed Alfredo's parents' marriage and baptized Alfredo as an infant.  While Fr. Marin Hernández, from nearby Tamán, San Luis Potosi, was a seminarian he visited with Alfredo when he expressed interest in a vocation to Holy Cross.

The chapel was quickly transformed into a dinning room.  200 people were seated and served within minutes.  The chapel holds 400 for liturgy. Of course, it's not a fiesta if there isn't any music.
