About
The 28th of each month is specifically devoted to San Judas Tadeo, patron saint of difficult situations. Visit the Templo de San Hipóltio downtown, at Paseo de la Reforma esq. Hidalgo (if you can get in), or just stay outside and see the people gather with their statues of San Judas. It's really something.

This church used to be a convent. The outside is very nice, but the inside is OK; there are more beautiful churches in Mexico City.
People go there to pray under the intercession of Saint Judas Tadeo.

This place is devoted to one saint name San Judas Tadeo, if you have faith and believe in this Saint this is a place you should visit, They did not have mass the day we visited so we only took some pictures and went home.

The interior is interesting but unusual in the sense you go down a set of steps to get there. The neighbourhood is a bit stifling, a little more rundown and dodgy than the more touristy areas only a block or two away.

I usually stay at a hotel across the street from this old church when I am in DF - yes, there are vendors outside all of the time, but that, is Mexico - Inside, it is a place of calm and coolness even if many people are there lighting candles, saying a prayer petitioning or doing other devotions. As of very recently they have begun to discourage sitting on the steps going down into the church but that's ok - it is always touching to see the "rough boys" and similar people stopping in to say a prayer or anoint themselves with holy water. If you are in the area, one of the entrances/exits for the Hidalgo Metro is right by the church, it's worth a stop if visiting Mexico City.

I visited San Hipolito specifically on Oct 28th for the blessing on San Tadeo. Thousands of people crowded the area with vendors of all sorts selling everything from religious icons, t-shirts, food and water. Getting into the church was an impossibility that day and it wasn't until I returned the day after that I realized the entrance to the church is actually a full set of stairs below street level.
It was an interesting experience.
