La Virgen de la Asunción
La patrona inmemorial de Jalostotitlán tiene un origen desconocido hasta ahora, pues no se han encontrado documentos que afirmen de donde proviene la imagen, ni la fecha en que llegó a la parroquia, sea cual sea la verdad es un hecho que al llegar la virgen de la Asunción cautivó a todos los pobladores por su singular belleza y creció la fe hacia ella rápidamente.

Sus fiestas se celebran del 1 a 16 de agosto reuniendo a todo el municipio y a sus hijos ausentes.
