St. Patrick Oratory Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help

St. Patrick Oratory Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Robinsonville (4047 Chapel Drive, New Franken, WI 54229) will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

Invoking the powerful intercession of Our Lady, we go to her Shrine for the spreading of the Kingdom of Christ the King. We desire that the Catholic Faith restore every aspect of our lives and of society. This pilgrimage is made especially in reparation for our sins, our families, and our country.

NOTE: Since this is the Jubilee Year of Mercy, and the Shrine is a HOLY DOOR LOCATION, we make this part of the event; therefore, it is possible to receive a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.

Schedule of events
Noon - Rosary
12:30 p.m. - Holy Mass will be celebrated at the Shrine
After Mass - Lunch (please bring your own food or sandwiches are available for purchase in the Shrine Café. Picnic tables are located on the grounds.)

Bring you friends and family to thank the Queen of Heaven for her maternal care.

URGENT APPEAL TO THE FAITHFUL OF ST. PATRICK ORATORY & ALL MEN OF GOOD WILL:

40 Days For Life: September 28-November 6, 2016

Dear faithful of St. Patrick Oratory and all Pro-Life Prayer Warriors,

St. Patrick Oratory 40 Days for Life Needs You!

From September 28 through November 6 you are invited to join other Christians for 40 Days for Life – 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. You are also invited to stand, walk, and peacefully pray during a 40-day vigil in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood at 2605 S. Oneida Street in Ashwaubenon and also to help spread the word about this important community outreach. Invite your family, friends, and neighbors!

Please join us:
Evening Shift - Fridays: 10:00 p.m. - 12:00 midnight 
Daytime Shift - Saturdays: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

40 Days For Life Green Bay (https://40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/green-bay/) is working hard to help educate all those who volunteer, arming them with information to help everyone be a better witness to the truth. Despite this, by no means is anyone obligated to answer questions while walking and praying. Help us to continue the fight against this culture of death and immorality.

As we hear the silent scream of the most innocent we shall respond by giving visible witness, prayer, penance, and the responsible use of our voting privileges to defend Life.

Please join (again) this year! Walk for an hour, or two, every week, or a few times... Everything counts! 

Yours truly in Christ the King
