Outdoor Chapel of the Resurrected Christ

On Tuesday, May 23, at 2:31 a.m., the Des Plaines Police Department responded to a fire report at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. A person had entered the campus and set fire to the outdoor Chapel of the Resurrected Christ. Both the Des Plaines Fire Department and the Des Plaines Police Department arrived on the scene and worked together to put the fire out. Unfortunately, the fire damaged the outdoor Chapel, several pieces of statuary, and sacred art. Although we are very saddened by the painful vandalism, we wish that through the help of our community, we can reconstruct the outdoor Chapel of the Resurrected Christ, also known as "the Altar of Miracles." Pilgrims visit for many reasons: some seek hope, others express gratitude; however, all come with prayers and express love to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Thank you for your prayers, and together we will rebuild this sacred space.

El martes 23 de mayo a las 2:31 a. m., el Departamento de Policía de Des Plaines respondió a un informe de incendio en el Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Una persona había ingresado al recinto e incendiado la Capilla del Cristo Resucitado. Tanto el Departamento de Bomberos de Des Plaines como el Departamento de Policía de Des Plaines llegaron al lugar y trabajaron juntos para apagar el incendio. Desafortunadamente, el fuego dañó la Capilla, varias estatuas y arte sacro. Aunque nos entristece mucho el doloroso vandalismo, deseamos que con la ayuda de nuestra comunidad podamos reconstruir la Capilla de Cristo Resucitado, también conocida como "el Altar de los Milagros". Los peregrinos visitan por muchas razones: algunos buscan esperanza, otros expresan gratitud; sin embargo, todos vienen con oraciones y expresan amor a nuestro Señor y Salvador, Jesucristo.

Gracias por sus oraciones y juntos reconstruiremos este espacio sagrado.
