IRONDALE, Ala. — EWTN Global Catholic Network will broadcast a special presentation of the historic December Mass and press conference in which Green Bay Bishop David Ricken announced that he had officially approved the Marian apparitions at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help at Champion.

The Mass and press conference at the shrine, the first and only U.S. site with an approved Marian apparition, are scheduled to air on EWTN at 2:30 p.m. CT, Sat., Feb. 5. (Locally, EWTN is available on Time Warner Cable Channel 11, AT&T U-verse TV Channel 562 and CenturyLink, Casco, Channel 2.)

One of Bishop Ricken's first official acts after going to Diocese of Green Bay was to open a formal church investigation into the apparitions that occurred on this site. A commission of three Marian experts began their work in January 2009.

At the Dec. 8 press conference, Bishop Ricken stated, "I declare with moral certainty and in accord with the norms of the church that the events, apparitions and locutions given to Adele Brise in October of 1859 do exhibit the substance of supernatural character, and I do hereby approve these apparitions as worthy of belief (although not obligatory) by the Christian faithful."
More information about the apparitions can be found on the shrine's Web site at
