No. 1049 GUADALUPE MISSION OF SAN JOSE - "Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel was established in 1953 by a Spanish speaking community of Catholic faithful led by father Donald McDonnell, a member of the San Francisco archdiocese's "Spanish mission band." Here Father McDonnell befriended a young Cesar Chavez and introduced his to a universe of writings about spirituality, labor rights, human rights and social justice. Father McDonnell also introduced Chvez to Fred Ross, and the chapel became an important home for their work with the community service organization. Later renamed McDonnell Hall, Guadalupe Mission Chapel provided a foundation for Chavez's work with Dolores Huerta to co-found the United Farm Workers Union and maintains its historic association with Chavez, the UFW, immigrants and all who are poor in spirit."
