Walk to Mary 2024

Our Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Adele Brise on the site of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion and gave her this message:

“Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation.”

At the core of education is the realization that life itself is a pilgrimage, and we are called to prepareourselves and our children for the journey. Learn more at www.championshrine.org | https://www.walktomary.com
