Issue Date: September 20, 2017
Crivitz"St. Mary Church of Crivitz plans a bus trip to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help on Wednesday, Oct. 11. This is an approved Marian Apparition site located 67 miles from Crivitz.
The Shrine marks the spot where Our Lady appeared to Adele Brice in 1859. In 1871, the Peshtigo Fire destroyed everything surrounding the five acres of land consecrated to Our Lady. The Shrine, convent and school and all the people who had gathered there seeking the protection of Our Lady were unharmed.
The parish, with help from their Council of Catholic Women, planned the trip which is free for the first 50 people to register. Lunch is not included, but persons have the option to bring own food or purchase food from the Shrine cafeteria. The trip is open to anyone. There is no school at Crivitz that date and are no Religious Education classes planned.
The group will leave from St. Mary Parish parking lot at 8:30 a.m. and return at 4 p.m. The day will include Mass, rosary, lunch, a talk about the Shrine and opportunities to explore the grounds and gift shop. RSVP by calling or texting 715-927-0192 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
