It will be 50 years since an airplane crashed into Our Lady of San Juan Del Valle's shrine and exploded into flames —this incident had a major impact on the Rio Grande Valley's catholic community.

Every year on Oct. 23, The Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan Del Valle holds a procession to mark the transition to the new shrine.

There will be special mass at 11:30 a.m. on Friday at the shrine, to honor the people who built it back up.
