Our Lady Of Peace

Noteworthy of mention is the fact that the Shrine is the only major Marian Shrine on the West Coast between Our Lady of Sorrows Shrine in Portland, Oregon, (over 700 miles to the north), and the famous Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, (over 2,300 miles to the south). We invite you to visit our serene and peaceful place of worship and experience the tender gaze and maternal solicitude of our Blessed Mother.

Located at the intersection of Freeway 101 and Great America Parkway, the parish of Our Lady of Peace was established in 1961 in a rural community, amidst acres of orchards and fields—“out in the boondocks,” as its first Pastor, Father Joseph G.Sullivan, fondly remembered. Fifty years later, the parish is surrounded by Silicon Valley’s corporate giants, Mission College, an ethnic variety of restaurants, Great America Amusement Park, and, recently, Levi Stadium—home of the SF 49’ers.
