Walk to Mary
Journey to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help with people from across the Diocese! This pilgrimage is a beautiful opportunity to spend time as a family by walking together and praying together. You can walk 21 miles, 14 miles, 7 miles, or 1.7 miles. You can find more info about the Walk here: https://walktomary.com/ and register here: https://walktomary.com/register/
The next Walk to Mary will be on May 6, 2023. It is the 10th Anniversary of the Walk to Mary, so this pilgrimage will be particularly special! Families are encouraged to go together. However, if there are any middle/high schoolers who would like to attend but aren't going with their families, they are invited to join the St. Nicholas group for the 7-mile portion of the Walk, starting from Holy Cross in Green Bay at 12:15 PM. If your child would like to journey as part of the St. Nicholas group (or if your family would like to journey with the St. Nicholas group) please contact Joe Hinshaw at email@example.com.
Love Begins Here Summer Mission Trip :
LOVE BEGINS HERE will provide the youth of our diocese with an opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ in a life changing way through a week long, local mission trip where they live in Catholic community and continue Jesus’ work on Earth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ypEgfO2JWU
This is a great opportunity for your child to do small things with great love and build friendships along the way!
St. Nicholas will be bringing a group of middle school students to the mission week from June 11-14! Our Lady of Lourdes in De Pere will be the host Parish for that week and the students will sleep there each night after a day of service, prayer, and fun. Spots are limited, so please contact Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org if your child would like to go on this adventure!
