About your trip

Wisconsin’s Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the only Marian Apparition site currently official recognized by the Vatican in the whole United States. In 1859 Our Lady appeared in Champion to Adele Brise. Our Lady asked Adele to teach religion to children, so her father built a Chapel for her catechism classes. In 1971 a fire spread across Green Bay, and the resident spent the night walking around the chapel grounds, carrying a statue of Mary, and praying the Rosary. The Chapel was unharmed and the historic procession is reenacted annually. Green Bay’s Catholic sites are a unique place for a pilgrimage, including the Holy Hill, St. Norbert College and Abbey, and St. Xavier Cathedral.
