Shrine Church Dedication Week a Success

The Guild was pleased to participate in the Church Dedication week at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin recently. We spent the week distributing Guild newsletters, prayer cards, pamphlets, and pilgrimage information to an enthusiastic crowd of visitors. We were also pleased to sponsor Bishop Joseph Madera’s talk on the catechism of the Tilma, and Marty Rotella’s performance at the St. Juan Diego Guild day for children.

Many thanks to Archbishop Burke and Sister Christa Marie for allowing us the opportunity to participate. The week was full of perfectly planned activities, and the Dedication Mass on Thursday, July 31, was exceptionally beautiful. It was a joy to be present!

If you have the opportunity, please visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse. It is a beautiful and peaceful setting, and a wonderful tribute to Our Lady. The new church is now open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., with Masses scheduled Monday – Saturday at 11:00, and Sundays at 1:00.
