‘Rosary Run’ takes motorcyclists to Good Help Shrine on June 20th

GREEN BAY — What’s your idea of a prayer retreat? Rosaries and reflection? Visits to a holy site or two?

How about the deep-throated rumble of a Harley?

On June 20, 2015, the fifth annual Rosary Run will set off from St. Norbert Abbey in De Pere with the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help as its goal. Along the way, there will be stops at four other holy sites for prayer. All travel will be by motorcycle. Registration will take place at the Abbey in De Pere at 9 a.m.

“Anything that can keep up” is welcome, according to Bernie Terrien of Green Bay. He and his wife, Lynn, began the Rosary Run in 2011 to raise funds for Amigos for Christ, an ecumenical project based in Atlanta and offering aid to the poor in Nicaragua. The Terriens, members of St. Bernard Parish in Green Bay, learned about Amigos for Christ on a mission trip with the group to Chinandega, Nicaragua, with Lynn’s adult daughter in October 2010.
