Event description
160th Apparition Anniversary Day Mass at The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, America's Church-Approved Marian Apparition Site

About this Event

Mass will be held by the Most Rev. David L. Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay, to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Champion. The day opens with morning Benediction, followed by a 9:30 AM opening talk by Miracle Hunter, Michael O'Neill of Relevant Radio. The Mass will be broadcast live on Relevant Radio, with Drew Mariani hosting. Group Rosary will be held at 10:30 AM, followed by Mass celebrated at 11 AM by the Most Rev. David L. Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay with Fathers of Mercy concelebrating.

This day marks an important date in Shrine history and is the ninth and final day of the nine-day National Novena to Our Lady of Good Help. On this day we ask all to join in praying the following prayer intention for the New Evangelization :

Today we pray for the New Evangelization that the popes of the modern era have initiated. In the Gospel of Matthew, before His ascension, Jesus instructed the disciples to “Go forth and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” This is the call to spread the faith and evangelize our world. Juan Diego evangelized an entire country, Adele Brise evangelized the area around the Door Peninsula, and today we are called to bear witness to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to those around us.

O Queen of Heaven, you appeared in the New World to Juan Diego and gave him the tilma—your image. Through this miraculous image, millions of Native Americans converted to the Catholic faith. To Adele Brise, you gave a blue print for catechesis— gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they need to know for salvation, their catechism, how to sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross, and how to approach the sacraments.

O Mary, you have been hailed as the Star of the New Evangelization. Guide the Church as she embarks on this mission of spreading the Gospel. May the Lord bless the Church’s laborers and those to whom she ministers. Grant to them, through your intercession, receptivity to the message of Christ. Open their hearts and their minds to the Gospel. O Mary, Star of the New Evangelization, please pray for the Church, and through your intercession may many more members be added to her flock, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
