Shrine benefiting local tourism

An important anniversary is only a part of the reason the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is helping fill hotel rooms in Door and Kewaunee Counties. The Champion landmark has seen its attendance increase 25 to 30 percent annually for the last several years, now approaching 160,000 visitors. The Mother of Mercy Hall, which was dedicated earlier this year, has allowed pilgrims to not just spread out while they are on the grounds, but also their visits. Communications Director Corrie Campbell says this allows visitors to experience more of the area in between sessions.

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help completes its novena commemorating the 160th anniversary of the site’s Marian apparition on Wednesday with a special mass performed Bishop David Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay at 11 a.m.
