Shrine hosts Christmas tradition

While some churches in Door and Kewaunee Counties will be locking their doors for the night, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion will be ringing in Christmas Day. A tradition that dates back to the early beginnings of the Catholic church, the Midnight Mass is one of the four different liturgies celebrating Christmas. Over the years, however, many churches have opted for earlier services to better fit the needs of their congregation. The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help added the Midnight Mass to its Christmas slate just a few years ago and its rector, Father John Broussard, says its uniqueness brings people in to pray.

The Midnight Mass at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is one of about dozen churches in the entire Diocese of Green Bay that hosts the service.
