Catholics from across the country will be in the area this week visiting the only church-approved Marian apparition site in the United States. The Catholic Media Conference held June 12th-15th will be held in the greater Green Bay area for the first time ever and is set to visit the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help on Wednesday to experience the site where Adele Brise claims to have seen Mary over 150 years ago. Corrie Campbell, Communications Director and Events Coordinator for the Shrine, says they are blessed to share their story on a national level.
Guests with the conference will participate in the Rosary Walk that commemorates the first act of grace on the church, the church being spared by the flames of a wildfire during the Peshtigo and Chicago Fires in 1871. The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help was approved as a Marian site in 2010 by Bishop Dave Ricken and designated as a National Shrine in 2016.
