Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine

Oklahoma City, OK 73149

The Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine in South Oklahoma City is an expansive 6,000-sq-ft campus honoring the first U.S.-born priest and martyr to be beatified by the Catholic Church. Blessed Stanley Rother, an American Roman Catholic Priest from Okarche, served as a missionary in Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala for 13 years before his death on July 28, 1981. Pope Francis confirmed Rother died a martyr on December 1, 2016 and Rother was officially beatified on September 23, 2017 in Oklahoma City.  

The Shrine is comprised of three main features – The Pilgrim Center, the Shrine Church & Chapel, and Tepeyac Hill. Guests to the Pilgrim Center can visit the on-site museum to learn more about Rother's life story and mission through video documentaries, artifacts and educational materials. The center also houses a gift shop with art and other Shrine-exclusive items. 

The church itself reflects Blessed Stanley’s missionary church in Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala through its Roman Baroque and Spanish Mission architectural style. Inside, over 2,000 seats are available for guests and pilgrims, while the back chapel serves as the final resting place for Blessed Stanley Rother.

Overlooking the shrine is Tepeyac Hill – a recreation of the Mexico City site where Mary, otherwise known as the Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to Saint Juan Diego in 1531. Ascend the hill to view painted bronze statues of Our Lady Guadalupe and Saint Juan Diego crafted by Mexico City-based artist, Georgina Farias Nicolopolus.
