MPC Members-2019 Scholarship/Queen Dinner Dance


Email Address*



The Mexican Patriotic Club was initiated in the late 1930's from a previously existing club called... the Mexican Patriotic Committee. The committee was founded through the efforts of the directors of Hull House. They wanted to have a committee in every community in Chicago and all together they would be called Mexican Patriotic Committees. Priests at Our Lady of Guadalupe sent representatives of the Mexican Patriotic Club through the church and also gave permission to use the church hall. The first Mexican Patriotic Club president was chosen. He was Father Montoya. The secretary of the committee was Mr. Severino Lopez, and Father Saenz was the treasurer. Later on the Mexican Patriotic Club had to be closed because both Father Montoya and Father Saenz were transferred to other churches out of Chicago. This caused a lack of direction in the club. Fortunately in 1948 the club came back and new officers were chosen. The new organization was called The Mexican Patriotic Club.
