 Summer is finally here and with lower gas prices and sunny days, it can be a wonderful time for vacation travel.  In addition to the traditional vacation stops like Wisconsin Dells and Door County, may I suggest to you some Catholic shrines to visit in Wisconsin this summer as well.  The first three places are powerhouse Marian Shrines and are quite well known but I couldn’t help but suggest some Catholic shrines that are a little less known and a little off the beaten path. 

1.  National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help ( Champion, WI) - Pilgrims from around the world have been experiencing the Shrine for over 150 years. The Catholic Church officially confirmed the Marian apparitions in 2010. And in 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) officially designated these grounds as a National Shrine.

2. Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians, Holy Hill Shrine (Hubertus, WI) –More than 500,000 people from all over the world visit the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians, at Holy Hill each year. Some come to admire the beautiful architecture of the neo-Romanesque church built in 1926. Others make a pilgrimage to Holy Hill to worship, to meditate or to pray for healing. 

3.  Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe (LaCrosse, WI)  In the beautiful bluffs of LaCrosse, resides a beautiful modern Marian Shrine complex, visited by thousands of visitors each year.  Envisioned by Cardinal Raymond Burke when he first came to the diocese in 1995,  it has become a place of pilgrimage  for receive renewed faith and grace.

4.  The Dickeyville Grotto and Shrines (Dickeyville, WI) - The Dickeyville Grotto and Shrines were erected by Father Matthias Wernerus. His handiwork in stone, built from 1925-1930, is dedicated to the unity of two great American ideals-love of God and love of Country. These religious and patriotic shrines were constructed without the use of blueprints.

5.  The National Shrine of Saint Philomena (Briggsville, WI)- In the late 1940s Father Wiltzius  from the Milwaukee area, brought with him a first-class relic of St. Philomena,  2nd Century Virgin- Martyr.  Father Wiltzius planned and built a shrine to be a replica of the dungeon where the young Martyr-Saint, Philomena, had suffered and died.

6.   Rudolph Grotto Gardens (Rudolph, WI) – In 1912, Fr. Philip Wagner be promised to build a shrine in Mary's honor, after visiting Lourdes and slowly being healed of illness .  Appointed to Rudolph, WI, he built a new church (now St. Phillip’s)  and grotto gardens. The Grotto Gardens include five acres of trees, flowers and meandering paths with man-made rock formations and various shrines. 

Happy prayerful travels, 

Deacon Mark





Youth Talk

  We begin this portion for the bulletin to create an avenue for the youth ministry to be involved in our Church-community, to voice out their minds and give them the opportunity to be enriched in their spiritual life.

  On June 14, due to weather, we did not gather. We will be rescheduling youth night. Stay tuned for date, time and location.

Let us pray every one’s whole hearted collaboration may lead us to a harmonious, fruit-filled community of believers, faithful people of God.

Journeying with you all,


 Fr. Joel and Fr. Francis, Missionaries of Faith 





Mass: A Slice At a Time

Same Thing, Different Names

Perhaps the greatest source of friction that exists between teens and parents when it comes to religion is the argument about going to Sunday Mass. Teens for decades have told their parents, “I’m not going to Church; its boring and pointless.”

Hopefully what is and will be written in this section of our bulletin can be of help to our teens with the interested eyes of their parents reading this article weekly.


Now, many experts feel that one reason it is harder today to appreciate the meaning of the word LITURGY and the sacraments is because of modern technology and modern media. Before we had movies and television, the Bible stories read at Mass and the priest’s homilies were people’s “entertainment” and education. Before we had books and magazines, the Church stained-glass windows and statues were the people’s source of visual information and art. Before we had radio and newspapers, talking with your neighbors after Church was your main source of community news. This doesn’t mean that modern tech and media are bad. But it does mean that their flash and instant entertainment can easily distract us from what is really important. You have to look harder today at what God is offering us in the Sacred Liturgy to discover its true and eternal value. Perhaps this is what the Holy Spirit wants us to do, so this great and wondrous gift from God isn't taken for granted. What is Liturgy then?

Welcome Visitors”

 We are happy you have chosen to attend Mass at St. Anthony’s and St. Michael’s. We hope you feel that you are among friends. If you are considering joining our parish, please talk with Fr. Joel or call the Parish Office. Welcome and God Bless!

The construction on the church is winding down and many of the projects have been completed.  Everyone will be amazed by the transformation and everyone will have a chance to enjoy our new home when Mass returns to church on Sunday, July 9, at 10:30am.

A small three drawer dresser has been donated to St. Michael’s Family Picnic for their silent auction from the family of Fred and Lizzie Ramsdell, who treasured it for many years.  This dresser was made by a Franciscan, Brother Dave. The Franciscans were here at St. Michael’s Parish from 1880 to 1980.   Brother Dave was here during boarding school days and was remembered for his handyman skills and toys that he would make for the children out of a chunk of wood.  Brother Dave is buried at St. Michael’s Cemetery.   The dresser will be on display in Barrett Hall after all Masses and can be bid on during our Picnic. There are also a few other items on display that will be in the Silent Auction.



Hear about the Menominee People and Forests.  Historic Preservation and Menominee Forestry will share the History of our Tribe and care of our tribal forest.  Learn what sustainable development is and why our forest has more board feet than when the Tribe began caring for it. Hear why we are proud of our land and forest.  Listen to the presentation; Interact with them; ask questions; learn more.

It’s time to “GROW A ROW” AND “SHARE THE BOUNTY”!  These programs are hunger prevention programs which allow gardeners to bring their excess produce to drop off sites where it is distributed to families and individuals who can use it. There is no paper work for the recipient. It is a “win-win” situation because recipients get healthy food and gardeners know their produce will not be wasted.  Drop off is 1st & 3rd Monday – 11 am to 1 pm and 1st & 3rd Tuesday 11 am – 2 pm. Pick up is 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month, 1-3 pm. This is for St. Michael’s Food Pantry.
