Annual Pilgrimage to The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians at Holy Hill

Hubertus, Wisconsin -  June 23, 2018

 

Pilgrims from across the Midwest attended the annual Marian pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Mary Help of Christians at Holy Hill on June 23, 2018.   Members of the Oratories of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wausau, Chicago and Rockford – and for the first time, Detroit -- participated in the pilgrimage.

The day began with an outdoor Rosary procession through the beautiful Wisconsin woodlands and outdoor Stations of the Cross, finally ending at the doorway of the Church.   A Solemn High Mass followed in the Basilica Church.  Canon Jayr of Milwaukee offered the Mass, assisted by Canon Estrada of Chicago, and Canon Boucheron of Green Bay as well as dozens of servers from the various Oratories.  Canon Huberfeld, and Canon Matheus of Wausau, Canon Commins of Chicago, and Canon Coggeshall of Rockford also participated, along with Abbe George of Milwaukee, Abbe Raymond of Chicago, Abbe Michael of Rockford and several candidates. 

After the Mass, pilgrims shared a picnic in the beautiful weather on the grounds of the Basilica, enjoying contact with friends old and new. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in the St. Therese Chapel in the lower level of the Basilica church followed the picnic and closed the day.

Extraordinarily, pilgrims were also able, during the day, to visit the special exhibition, “St. Therese: Burning with Love” which is in the church’s lower-level Chapel through July.  This exhibit, honoring in a special way one of the Institute’s special patrons, includes first-class relics of St. Therese available for veneration.
