A Message to the Faithful about Visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help for Personal Prayer, Reflection and Refuge:
During a time when we are all feeling the challenges of daily restrictions on space, Champion Shrine remains a peaceful place of refuge where all can feel their Blessed Mother’s warm embrace as she brings them closer to her son, Jesus.
Pursuant to a provision of Emergency Order #12 of the State of WI that classifies charitable and social service organizations as essential business, The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help will remain open 7 AM, until 7 PM CDT daily, to individuals who wish to partake in personal prayer and reflection indoors at the Shrine Chapel, Apparition Oratory and history center, and outdoors on the beautiful, peaceful, sacred grounds that encompass the Shrine’s religious grottoes, devotionals and outdoor rosary walk.
The Shrine Gift Shop and Café will be closed until such time as restrictions are lifted on these types of operations.
Individuals on site will be required to practice social distancing, both indoors and outdoors, and observe room capacity restrictions, as outlined on signage posted on all Shrine grounds and facilities.
With public masses and large gatherings suspended on site through mid-April (by the 3/17/20 directive of the Diocese of Green Bay), Mass will be recorded and live-streamed daily from Champion Shrine between 8:30 AM, until 9:30 AM (CDT)with the doors of the Chapel locked during that time.
