A pilgrimage to Our Lady

Catholics from around the diocese, including Bishop Donald Kettler, traveled by bus to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Aug. 20. The group toured the Shrine Church and the grounds before attending a Mass that Bishop Kettler concelebrated with a priest of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, who care for the shrine. The trip also included lunch and free time to explore the shrine’s devotional areas.
