Santa María de Guadalupe, the new Franciscan home for the Solitude of Córdoba


The Brotherhood of La Soledad will settle throughout 2020 in their new home, the parish of Santa María de Guadalupe. In the brotherhood, little is known about this temple, beyond starring in one of the children's processions, also partly organized by the Brotherhood of Solitude. This procession takes place on Passion Sunday. Now, with the arrival of Solitude, both the brotherhood and the parish will gain more life, but what else is known about this temple?

The parish is linked to the college, governed by the Franciscan order, the same character that marks the brotherhood that will soon become an active part of that territory. This fact also consumes a settlement of the Franciscans in the city. The Franciscan presence in Córdoba began, according to Juan José Primo Jurado in his book Iglesias de Córdoba, in 1236 and lasted until the nineteenth century confiscation with four male convents: San Pedro el Real, San Francisco de la Arruzafa, San Pedro from Alcántara and Madre de Dios.

This presence would not return until 1970, when the Santa María de Guadalupe school was founded, in the same place that continues today, 28 de Febrero Avenue, then behind the Lepanto Barracks. The school was located in a neighborhood that lacked Christian educational institutions and gave it, in addition, a popular character, its chapel working since then as a parish.

The interior of the temple has a rectangular plan, it has three separate naves. In the presbytery there is a crucified man somewhat smaller than life, next to a sculpture of Saint Francis of Assisi and a dress image of Santa María de Guadalupe, a Marian dedication that gives the temple its name.

With this change, the brotherhood will gain much more activity. The connection with the school will make him rejuvenate in addition to gaining new brothers. It also seeks to increase activities, promoting the values ​​that both entities already have. Perhaps the only one but it will be the change on Good Friday, where they will have to spend more hours on the street since their new house is further away from the Cathedral than Santiago was.
