Please come join us at our first ever “Summer Session” in North America. Retreat, Vacation and Pilgrimage at the only recognized Marian Apparition in the U.S., all rolled into one.

Come join us as we enjoy the beauty of Door County, WI and the graces of Our Lady of Good Help a place where a young Belgian girl was called by Our Lady to Evangelize. This is the only recognized Marian Apparition in the United States. We will have times of prayer, teachings, adoration, Masses and Praise at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. All children are welcome!

When? Arrive Thursday, July 4th until Sunday, July 7th.

Where? Brothers and sisters and their friends and family are asked to find their own accommodations. Some families are sharing an Air-bnb home in New Franken, WI just 20 minutes from the Shrine. There are also surrounding camp grounds for outdoor camping.

What? This is our first endeavor to begin to create “Summer sessions” (like in the tradtion of Paray-le-Monial, France) in North America.

Cost? The cost are accommodations + travel + food. Each family must coordinate all these aspects of their stay. The retreat part will be coordinated by a few community families who will be leading the pilgrimage.

We will have a community priest join us for the duration of the pilgrimage.
