Our Lady of Light Parish

The building is a prime exemplar of neoclassical architecture, the construction works began in 1857, thanks to the efforts of Father Francisco de Paula. The parish was finally completed in 1896, and it was inaugurated by His Eminence Archbishop José Ignacio Arciaga of Michoacán, while Father Jesús Orozco assumed the role of pastor for the parish.

In 1779, Don Julián de Obregón ordered the transfer of a painting of Our Holy Lady of Light to the parish. Because of the significance of this religious figure as the patron saint of the city, a second painting of Our Lady of Light was commissioned by Father Esteban Nieto in 1885

In 1773, the original Baptismal Font, where Father Migue Hidalgo y Costilla was baptized, was transferred to the parish. Later, in 1910, it would be relocated to Mexico City as part of the festivities for the 100th Anniversary of Mexico’s Independence.
