Assumption Mass at Good Help Shrine with Bp. Ricken

As many as 3,000 attended this event in recent years, upwards of 10,000 in years past
Outdoor Mass at 11 A.M. with Principal Celebrant, Bishop David L. Ricken, and special guest Bishop Emeritus Tafoya. Mass will be outside, followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament and rosary procession on the shrine grounds. Please bring your own lawn chairs for seating on the outside lawn.

This special celebration on the Feast of the Assumption is a tradition at the Shrine that was started by Adele Brise after the great fire of 1871. The current statue used in the procession was given to Adele by St. Joseph Parish in Champion, after the original statue was damaged.
