Our Lady of Guadalupe Church Plans for 1,300

The week before Easter, Fr Israel Mago, Pastor, treated the congregation of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church to the recently revised draft renderings of the congregations’ new church.

For most of the parish members, the story behind this building campaign is nothing short of a miracle.

It seems every obstacle turned out to be God saying “not yet, I have a better plan”. And so it happened that an anonymous donor from Mexico devoted to the Virgin of Guadalupe, learning of the efforts of this parish, offered a two-forone match of funding to help build a church that would be able to accommodate what is quickly becoming one of the largest parishes in the Miami Dade County. While the original design for the temporary church was would have held 900, the new design for a Marian Sanctuary permanent church building will hold 1300.

Architects from Mexico will be visiting soon to unveil the final plans to an excited congregation that has managed to form a beautiful church family, despite having to rent space from Doral Charter High School where for weekly masses, and use office spaces for other meetings.

In fact, the Youth Group so quickly outgrew its space that the group now meets at a donated warehouse space on 114th Ave.
