Our Lady of Good Help

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is a Marian shrine, located within the Diocese of Green Bay. The chapel is in the community of Champion, Wisconsin, about 16 miles north east of Green Bay, Wisconsin. It stands on the site of the reported Marian apparition to a Belgian-born woman, Sister Adele Brise, in the year 1859.

The apparition was formally approved on December 8, 2010, by Bishop David Ricken, becoming the first Marian apparition approved by the Catholic Church in the United States. And in 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) officially designated these grounds as a National Shrine.
