Our Lady of Good Help Pilgrimage 2017

Over 200 Knights, Dames, Special Pilgrims, Clergy, Medical Personnel, and Volunteers spent August 3rd through August 6th visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help and the Shrine of St. Joseph.

The Pilgrimage began with opening Mass at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral celebrated by Bishop David L. Ricken. During Mass, Bishop Ricken blessed the hands of all those present (Knights, Dames, and Caregivers) who care for the sick.

Pilgrims visited the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help where they celebrated Mass, visited the apparition site, participated in the Rosary Procession, the Stations of the Cross, the Adoration and Healing Service, and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Married couples also had the opportunity to renew their marriage vows and consecrate their marriages to the Blessed Mother.

At the National Shrine of St. Joseph at St. Norbert College, pilgrims celebrated the Adoration and witnessed the Anointing of the Sick.

Members ended each evening with a Tri-Association dinner and a presentation on a topic related to the Pilgrimage.
