La Crosse, Wisconsin is the site of the new Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe the massive, splendid Marian Shrine adorning a picturesque hillside on the East Bank of the Mississippi River.
This is the one of the largest and most beautiful building projects in Catholic Archtecture. Our great friend, and the leader of the Restoration of The Sacred, Professor Duncan Stroik, is leading the design of the Shrine. Three Cheers!
The visitor center is open, the Chapel to Our Lady of Good Counsel is open, the Meditation Trail is open, the Walking Stations of the Cross are open, the excellent Culina Mariana restaurant is open, the Marygarden will open soon.
Congrats to Bishop Listecki, and thanks to Archbishop Burke, Sister Christa Marie, F.S.G.M, and Chris Carstens from the Diocese of La Crosse for hosting the Society of St. Barbara. A Shrine this grand will be a great center for devotion to Our Lady.
