Pilgrimage from LaCrosse to Champion
Pilgrimage from Our Lady Of Guadalupe in LaCrosse to Our Lady Of Good Help in Champion.
On May 16 a group started their pilrimage at Our Lady Of Guadalupe in LaCrosse. They are a wonderful faith-filled group. On Friday May 28th, St Joseph Parish was proud to host the pilgrim backpackers. Our time with them was inspiring. We prayed with them, enjoyed a meal with them and had a wonderful time of fellowship. They expect to reach Our Lady in Champion on Sunday May 30th.
Dec 20, 2020 - Dec 20, 2021 (click here for Prayer To St Joseph)
In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis describes Saint Joseph as a beloved father, a tender and loving father, an obedient father, an accepting father; a father who is creatively courageous, a working father, a father in the shadows.
The Letter marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pope Pius IX’s declaration of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To celebrate the anniversary, Pope Francis has proclaimed a special “Year of St Joseph,” beginning on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2020 and extending to the same feast in 2021.
The Holy Father wrote Patris corde against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, he says, has helped us see more clearly the importance of “ordinary” people who, though far from the limelight, exercise patience and offer hope every day. In this, they resemble Saint Joseph, “the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence,” who nonetheless played “an incomparable role in the history of salvation.”
