The traditions of Christmas will come alive at Champion Shrine. The Novena for the Nativity of Our Lord is held Dec. 17-25: nine days of prayer during which pilgrims reflect on the birth of Jesus while visiting Champion Shrine or receiving daily prayers by email. To sign up, visit ShrineOfOurLadyOfGoodHelp.com.
Midnight mass will be held Dec. 24, with group rosary beginning at 11:30 pm. Christmas Day masses will be held at 8:30 am and 11 am, with rosary at 10:30 am.
“This Christmas season we welcome all of our neighbors, fellow Catholics and Christians to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ with us at the shrine,” said the shrine’s rector, Fr. John Broussard. Leading up to Christmas, the shrine will again participate in the Order of Malta Food Drive for the Hungry. Free-will monetary and food offerings will be collected throughout December and given to the Giving Tree and Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay.
