Guadalupe in New York

This chapter recounts the founding of the two comités guadalupanos that were the focus of the research and the umbrella organization that links them, the Asociación Tepeyac. It focuses on three kinds of activities that two certain parishes engage in, not only for the ways they illustrate different modes of mobilization and institutional contexts, but also for the way they illuminate the experiences of Mexican immigrants in New York City more generally. The first is Saint John Parish's Comité Guadalupano, presided over by Father John Kenny, whose benevolent and cheerful but hands-off approach differed from the relationship the Comité of Our Lady of Rosary Parish had with its pastor. Additionally, there seems to be more emphasis within the latter parish relative to other churches on forging a generic Catholic identity, devoid of vernacular religiosities.
