Our Lady of Good Help, Green Bay, Marge Fenelon, Marian PilgrimageMary appeared there to a young woman named Adele Brise in 1859.

That same year, Adele’s father built a chapel on the site of the apparitions.

In 1864, a school and convent were built on the premises.

In 1871, the property was miraculously spared from the deadly Peshtigo Fire through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In 1942, a new chapel was built and dedicated to Mary under the title Our Lady of Good Help.

In 2010, Bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay approved the apparitions in a formal declaration.

In 2017, you and I embark on a virtual pilgrimage to take in the beauty and grace of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.

That day is June 23, 2017.

June 23 is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and what better way to give glory to his Sacred Heart than by honoring the beautiful Lady who bore that Heart in her womb?

The day starts with a kickoff segment at 6:45amCT on Relevant Radio’s Morning Air Show  when I’ll chat with hosts John Harper and Glen Lewerenz about my journey.

Afterward, I’ll hit the road for the two-hour drive to the Relevant Radio Studios in Green Bay where I’ll have the great pleasure of meeting the Morning Air crew in person. I am SO excited to meet other members of the Morning Air family!!

From there,  I’ll head to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help where I’ll meet some of the wonderful folks responsible for the shrine’s administration before I spend time praying, contemplating, exploring, and absorbing this miraculous place. I’ll be live-streaming on Facebook during my time there to share with you some of what I’m experiencing as well as accepting your questions and prayer intentions in the comments (or via email marge@margefenelon.com). Of course, I’ll pray for you and your intentions while I’m there!

In the afternoon, it’s back to the Relevant Radio Studios to meet the crew of The Drew Mariani Show.  Then I’ll have the amazing gift of meeting Drew in person and of joining him in praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet live on air. I do have to admit that I’m a bit star-struck and a tad nervous about meeting Drew, as I’ve admired his good work for the Lord for a very long time!

From the Relevant Radio Studios, I’ll head back home so that I can blog about my adventures here at MargeFenelon.com and at National Catholic Register.

A full, grace-filled day, to say the least!

I hope you’ll join me on this journey and invite your family and friends to share in the adventure, too. Please don’t forget to let me know your prayer intentions so that I can pray for you and those you care about. And, please pray for me as I hit the road to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Grab your backpack, water bottle, and rosary and let’s GO!

Please pray for the conversion of secular music artists that are not being good role models to our youth. Please pray that with their conversion they will give witness to God and help their fans turn back to God, but while they convert that they aren’t able to misguide anyone else. Please pray especially for the conversion of Halsey and Miley Cyrus, and all those that being confused themselves are misguiding so many young souls.

Elizabeth · June 23, 2017 at 3:51 pm

Please pray for our daughter Jessica. We haven’t seen her in 5 years or our granddaughter Isabella. Jessica was very abusive to us and encouraged by my older sisters who are anti-Catholic. It’s certainly been painful and have offered that suffering up but it feels like all my prayers for her are unheard. We are concerned about our granddaughter not being raised in the faith and being confused. Please pray for this situation. God bless.

For the two new priests ordained for the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon, especially Fr. Hans Mueller. He visited my mom monthly at home during his pastoral year at our parish.

Jody Ilisco · June 23, 2017 at 4:50 pm

Marge Please pray for my 88yo father who suddenly developed rapid atrial fib and bradycardia as well as hypotension. He is in the ICU and I was expecting a pacemaker would help however the cardiologist that was consulted said No hes too high risk for infection because he has R and L sided central lines in his neck where the pacemaker would go.
In March he fractured his hip and his BP dropped causing his kidneys to completely shut down requiring hemodialysis. Rehabilitated from that walking with a cane when his Heart rate dropped and he fell down and ambulance brought to hospital Wednesday.

bob · July 9, 2017 at 10:00 pm

I am a revert after a 40-year absence. My wife and I have been married for 47 years and she not being Catholic has been having a terrible time with my return. We have had some interesting discussions, to say the least. I have been praying the Rosary for my wife since my return and would like prayer for her to be at least somewhat more tolerable and not to have so much animosity toward the Catholic Church. Yes, I would love for her to become Catholic but as Father Pacwa say’s ” we are in sales and God is in management” and however God want’s to move in her life then so be it. And also my two grown daughters and 6 grandkids and four great grandkids, pray for them as well. Thank you and may God richly bless you!

    Marge Fenelon · July 13, 2017 at 8:40 am

    Thank you, Bob. Of course I will pray for your intentions as I continue my Marian Pilgrimage. God bless you and all that you do.

Sue De Wane · July 23, 2017 at 7:52 am

Please pray for my Dad who is dealing with kidney cancer. Also, please pray for my son. May they both feel the presence of God and His eternal love as they deal with what life has dealt them.

    Marge Fenelon · July 24, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    Sue, I have your intentions in my notebook. Be assured of my prayers!
