Located in Champion, Wisconsin (16 miles northeast of Green Bay), the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the only Church-approved Marian Shrine in the United States.

About the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help: On October 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 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 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 Mass.

Riverbend TEC - St. Mary, Bird Island
Apr
14
to Apr 16

Riverbend TEC - St. Mary, Bird Island

What happens at TEC?

Participants experience the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ through participation in music, discussions, talks, prayer, Scripture, liturgy, and celebration.

Each of the days of the retreat has a central theme:

Die Day” is the first day – a day centered on the death of Jesus Christ. On “Die Day”, participants reflect on many different aspects of their lives, focusing on better relationships with God, self, and others.

Rise Day” is the second day – a joyous celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. On “Rise Day”, participants celebrate the presence of God’s love in their lives.

Go Day” is the third day – a day which explores the continuous call to spread the Good News. On “Go Day”, participants recognize and prepare to carry forth the message of Jesus Christ.

A Riverbend TEC weekend seeks to facilitate spiritual growth through participation in group activities and prayer experiences. The faith of every individual is respected and invited to open their hearts more fully to Jesus Christ.

Participation

Retreats are open to youth and adults. Youth must be 16 or older. Most weekends have some adult participants.

Weekends are staffed and attended by people primarily from the Catholic Diocese of New Ulm, although people from other areas of Minnesota, other states, and even foreign nations have attended.

Though a Catholic retreat, non-Catholics are welcome and do participate.
