Hundreds expected to attend Assumption Mass at Good Help Shrine with Bp. Ricken

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help will once again welcome hundreds of pilgrims for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Wednesday, August 15, 2018. Mass with Principal Celebrant, Most Reverend David Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay, and Most Reverend Martin D. Holley, Bishop of Memphis, will take place at 11 a.m. with rosary procession to follow.

“The Feast of the Assumption is a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church and a day Champion Shrine holds dear for our Blessed Mother,” says Father John Broussard, CPM, rector at the Champion Shrine.

The Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary celebrates the assumption of Mary into Heaven following her death. The feast day is celebrated around the world on August 15. For those who cannot attend the Shrine’s Assumption Mass, Relevant Radio will carry the mass. Usual Wednesday Mass at the Shrine will take place at 8:30 a.m. on August 15.

3,000 souls attended a few years ago, and several decades ago used to get 10,000.
