The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion is taking a deep look into the Catholic faith as it celebrates the tenth anniversary of being declared an official Marian Apparition site. Father Thomas Reagan will lead the 15-week series called Championing the Word Wednesdays as he focuses on how Catholics approach the sacraments and interpret the Bible. Reagan hopes the series helps people realize there is always room to grow no matter where you may be with your faith.
Championing the Word Wednesdays begin on January 22nd and continue through April 29th. The free events begin at 6 p.m. with a mass followed by discussions until approximately 8:15 p.m.
