About the Shrine
Pilgrims from around the world have been visiting the Shrine and walking its sacred grounds for over 150 years.

Bishop David Ricken announced on Wednesday, December 8th, 2010, that he officially approves the Marian apparitions that occurred on the site of the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. The announcement was made during a special Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception held at the Shrine which is located at Champion, Wisconsin. In 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) officially designated these grounds as a National Shrine.
