Conchita Barrecheguren will be beatified in Spain after a miracle was recognized.

Conchita Barrecheguren will be beatified May 6 in the cathedral of Granada, Spain. She died at only 22 years of age in 1927, and her father, after being widowed 10 years later, became a Redemptorist.

They were both recognized as venerable in 2020.

The miracle involved a 16-month-old girl in multi-organ septic shock, who was healed after a novena said to Conchita.
