Our Lady of Guadalupe Church

23rd & Madison Avenue 

Our Lady of Guadalupe is a symbol of unity and solidarity among Mexicans. In 1531, Juan Diego encountered a young girl in the hills outside of Mexico City. He recognized her as the Virgin Mary, and asked her to perform miracles to prove who she was. Within days, Juan Diego’s uncle was healed. He found roses growing on a barren hilltop and he gathered them in his cloak. When he returned to show the bishop, the roses fell to reveal the image of the Virgin Mary.

Kansas City’s Our Lady of Guadalupe church sits at the foot of the hills in the Westside. Though the parish has merged with another, the building is maintained as a shrine.
