Lourdes, Fatima, Guadalupe, and Champion are all part of a select group of places worldwide where the Blessed Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared.
The National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion is the first and only approved Marian Apparition site in the United States and Canada. Located in Champion, Wisconsin, it covers and preserves the peace-filled grounds where Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared to Adele Brise in 1859, identifying herself as “The Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners.”

- A welcoming sanctuary of peace inviting all to grow in their relationship with Her Son, Jesus
- A destination for pilgrims who seek healing of mind, body, and soul
- An environment that fosters the teaching of the Catholic faith to children and adults
