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.
