Priest from Marian shrine in Portugal visits Champion
0 0

The chaplain of a shrine in Portugal that the Catholic church says is a confirmed site of an apparition of the Virgin Mary is in northeast Wisconsin.

Father Francisco Pereira is visiting the shrine in Champion this week. He's from the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima. Pope Francis went to that shrine last weekend to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparition.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion is the church's only confirmed site in the U.S.

Pereira says the message of hope is the same, at both locations.

Pereira will lead a special mass at the shrine in Champion, on Sunday at 11 a.m.
