Seventh Day

O Lady of Guadalupe, we beg you that parents live a holy life and educate their children in a Christian manner; that children obey and follow the directions of their parents; that all members of the family pray and worship together.

This we ask of you, O Mother.

Hi Alice. I've been unable to chech back in for some time. Sorry about that. I didn't see my name on the list as coming. So I was wondering if my request didn't go thru perhaps....??? Might you have counted me for lunch when I first said yes in the forum?

Most grateful if you could let me know Alice. Blessings

Alice,

I am so looking forward to this gathering! It will be my 1st of (hopefull many) CM events.

If this is going to be a yearly event, I suggest for next year picking another weekend. The 1st weekend in June happens to be the State Track Meet in La Crosse, and hotels fill up quickly. I should have known with my kids having been in track, but it didn't occur to me until I was trying to book a room.

Thanks for all your hard work!

Thanks Alice for putting on this event. I live close to 6 hours away & have visited twice & would have joined with this, but I am helping with my church's fundraising event that keeps me from attending. In the future if you again have an outing to The Shrine I would like to attend.

I visited this beautiful shrine a few years ago. I know Fr. Peter - what a humble, holy, intelligent man. The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate are in charge of the shrine. I am a member of the MIM (Missionaries of the Immaculate Mediatrix) and count my blessings every day for being associated with this group of valiant soldiers of Our Lady! Well worth the trip, but I am obligated to care for my greenhouses this spring. Perhaps in the summer...

It sounds wonderful, Anne, but because of my children, I'm not able to travel alone right now. They're old enough to afford me a day trip, which is why this one appeals to me so much. This will be my first CM event and I am more than ready to get out and shake hands and give hugs. It will be awesome to tie real people to their profiles.

I have been to the shrine and want to add that no photo can possibly convey the feel of the blue votive chapel to our Lady. It is a must experience first hand kind of place. So happy to see the group grow!

Last May I attended a week Pilgrimage here with my parish. It is a wonderful place to spend a week in prayer. Wish I lived closer, as I would love to go back. It is about an 8-1/2 hr drive one way. I hope all that attend enjoy this as much as I did.
