From Shrine to Shrine: It's the "Walk to Mary" - 7th Annual Walk to Mary

From Shrine to Shrine: It's the "Walk to Mary" - 7th Annual Walk to Mary

(Champion, Wis.) – Pilgrims from Northeast Wisconsin, and far beyond, will make the journey from the Shrine of St. Joseph at Old St. Joseph Church in De Pere to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wis. on Saturday, May 4. Registration for the 7th annual Walk to Mary is now open.

“The 21-mile trek from Shrine to Shrine is a wonderful reminder of the journey many of us take with Mary to Jesus,” says Pat Deprey, Walk to Mary co-founder, who also serves as the event director. “Faith is a test of perseverance. It’s the journey we take to get there that makes it worthwhile.”

“Our Lady’s instructions to Adele Brise, when she appeared for the final time to her at Champion in 1859, inspired Brise to journey in a 50-mile radius around Champion to teach children their catechism at homes in the area,” Deprey said. “It was Adele’s faith and her covenant to bring more people to Jesus through Mary that inspired her journey.”

The Walk to Mary will again be supported by Father Francis Hoffman. Known as “Father Rocky,” he is executive director of Relevant Radio, the largest Catholic radio broadcasting network in the U.S., headquartered in Green Bay.

“Father Rocky was the first to bring up the idea of a pilgrimage and, with Mother Mary’s help, Walk to Mary has become a reality,” said event co-founder Tom Schmit. “It’s great to see how this event has grown in the last few years. We look forward to welcoming more and more pilgrims.”

In addition, the Fathers of Mercy will celebrate Mass at 3:30 p.m. Saturday and The Most Reverend David L. Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay, will celebrate Mass at the Shrine at 5:15 p.m. Saturday. On Sunday, May 5 at 11 a.m., Father Rocky will serve as principal celebrant at Mass with the traditional May Crowning ceremony at the Shrine.

To register for Walk to Mary, visit www.walktomary.com. Shorter walking routes are available for the journey with lunch provided at Holy Cross Parish in Green Bay.

 

About the Shrine: On Oct. 9, 1859, the Queen of Heaven appeared to Adele Brise in Champion, Wisconsin, and said to her, “Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation. Teach them their catechism, how to sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and how to approach the sacraments; that is what I wish you to do. Go and fear nothing. I will help you.” In 2010, Bishop David Ricken granted formal Church approval to the Marian apparition at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. In 2016, it was designated as a National Shrine by the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops. It is the first and only confirmed appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the United States.

Mass is held at the National Shrine daily at 11 a.m. and at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday and Saturday. Confession is at 10 a.m. Sunday – Friday and 9:15 a.m. on Saturday. Devotions take place Wednesday at 4:30 p.m., during the Sunday Holy Hour at 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. and the first Saturday of the month after the 8:30 a.m. Mass.

Viewings of the film "Unplanned" - AMC Theatre - New Ulm

Viewings of the film "Unplanned" - AMC Theatre - New Ulm

The movie “Unplanned, based upon the true story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood leader who left the abortion industry to become an ardent pro-life advocate is going to be showing at the New Ulm AMC Theater.  It has been showing around the country and has been described by some as turning the tide in this country to pro-life by revealing abortion for what it is, the murder of an unborn child.  Because of the graphic nature of abortion and its violent assault on the dignity of the human person it has been given an R rating.  As we consider this fact it becomes clear that the mission of this film is to open our eyes and our hearts to do all that we can so that no unborn child has to experience this kind of graphic death,   

Support of the film “Unplanned” gives everyone the opportunity to do just that by getting the message out that abortion is the murder of an unborn child, a child who deserves our ove, respect, and protection so it can live a life in accord with its dignity,  While the movie by virtue of the reality of what Abby Johnson experienced has an abortion scene, it also highlights the beauty of the pro-life message that all life is sacred and meant to bring the blessing of family to the lives of all those who are touched by the pregnancy, as well as our society as a whole. Your support of “Unplanned” is so necessary; support it with your prayers, support it with your presence at the theater.  Let’s make our presence there a celebration of ife which is the deepest message of this movie.

We thank the Knights of Columbus, as well as the many other community organizations who have worked so tirelessly in the spirit of their pro-life commitment to make the showing of this film in New Ulm possible.
