Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine

Description:

Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine is a Catholic Shrine located in Kansas City, Missouri

On October 12, 1990, as the result of a diocesan planning effort it was announced that the Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish would be consolidated with Sacred Heart Parish. The parish site would be that of Sacred Heart but a new parish would be formed with a new name. Thus Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at 901 Avenida Cesar E. Chavez would be closed February 1991.

Supporters of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church formed Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine Assoc. Inc., under the guidance of Ramona Arroyo, Teresa Sauceda and George Morales. The main objective of the organization was to maintain and support Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. A proposal was created asking John J. Sullivan, Bishop of the Kansas City/St. Joseph Diocese, to preserve the Church as a Shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The Bishop approved the proposal and the Shrine was leased to the Association.

There are four stainglass windows in the Shrine that depict the apparations of Our Lady of Guadalupe that occurred on the hill of Tepeyac, Mexico. The picture in the center alter of the Shrine was painted by a local artist.
