“I am not Catholic, but I love walking around, seeing the view, feeling serene and filled with God’s love and lighting a candle for those I love who are no longer with me. You will leave feeling renewed and filled with joy.”

– Susan, Visitor

Shrine Grounds Summer Picnic Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Picnic Tables are set up around the parking lot for pilgrims.

“The Memorial to the Unborn eloquently expresses the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe: God’s all-merciful love toward all of His children from the moment of their conception. Even as God Himself chose to be conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary, as the first moment of His greatest act of love of us, so He has taught us the inviolable dignity of all human life. Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of America and Star of the New Evangelization, is, in a particular way, the Mother of the Unborn.”

– Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 12 December 2008
