27-29 July great Hispanic events @GuadalupeShrine in Wisconsin – plan a pilgrimage

I had notice of an upcoming event at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe near La Crosse, Wisconsin.

If you have never visited this beautiful shrine, you might consider a summer road trip pilgrimage.  Also in Wisconsin is the shrine of the only officially approved Marian apparition in these USA.

However, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the Diocese of La Crosse, there is an event on 29 July 2018 for Hispanic communities.

Msgr. Eduardo Chavez, Postulator for the cause of St. Juan Diego, and His Eminence Norberto Cardinal Rivera Carrera, Archbishop Emeritus of Mexico City, will be at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin and will offer a presentation on Our Lady of Guadalupe – Mother of the Civilization of Love and a Pontifical Mass in Spanish.  (I assume that is Novus Ordo, rather than TLM.)

There is no cost to attend and registration is not necessary.  However, seating will be first come-first serve so pilgrims should arrive early.  Large groups should notify.

There will also be a conference on Our Lady of Guadalupe in English, with His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, on July 27-28.  Registration for that can be found HERE.

If you haven’t visited the Shrine, it is worth the effort.

    These guys are near me in New Mexico: http://www.ourladyofguadalupemonastery.com/newsletters.html
    They are hard-core in their Catholic Faith; and remember is was Pope Francis who said they can validly hear confession.

    I have visited this Shrine and it is a lovely, peaceful place with an exceptionally beautiful church. There are ongoing holy programs presented all the time. I know there are plans to build a retreat center so pilgrims can stay on the grounds and that will be most helpful. The Shrine is staffed by the friars of the Franciscans of the Immaculate.
