Additional observations Our Lady of Grace is a parish of the Diocese of Tucson.  It is south of Phoenix, and is known for a 4000-acre cotton farm and later cattle ranch owned by actor John Wayne.  The parish began as a mission church in the 1950s.  After many years of fundraising, a new, 500-seat church was built in 2015 and dedicated in 2016. It is a beautiful, traditional church inside and out.  There is land around the church for additional buildings as funds are raised.  It has a gift shop with gift items.
