As part of the Vatican's efforts to prepare the world for the Extraordinary Year of Mercy, the relics of the beloved St. Maria Goretti are coming to the United States for the first time.

Their only stop in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee with be at St. Mary's Visitation Parish in Elm Grove, October 17th (9am-12pm & 6pm-11pm) and October 18th (12:30pm-5pm).

There will also be a Solemn Holy Mass (Ordinary Form) offered in honor of the St. Maria Goretti at 9am on the 17th.

More information is available at The St. Mary's Visitation website or the official website of the pilgrimage.

Her relics will also visit the Diocese of Madison on October 16th and will be at a number of places in the Archdiocese of Chicago the previous week.

What makes a "Solemn Holy Mass" different from any other Novus Ordo? It just seems like a made-up distinction.
