|Join us on a Pilgrimage to Holy Hill, the Basilica National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians in Hubertus, Wisconsin on Friday, May 20.
Holy Hill is located in southeast Wisconsin, on the highest elevation in that part of the state. Situated on 435 acres of rural countryside, it provides the visitor with the opportunity for spiritual enrichment. We often hear visitors remark about the peace, beauty and serenity they find at Holy Hill.
As early as 1903, Holy Hill was declared a Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians. In 2006, the Shrine was raised to the status of Minor Basilica. But as far back as the 1700s and perhaps earlier, the American Indians came to Holy Hill because they considered it a sacred place.
Many come to Holy Hill as "tourists", only to find that they have been touched by something deeper than natural beauty or curiosity. We know that God is truly present on this Holy Hill, and we invite you to come and share with us this Presence! For more information visit the Holy Hill website at www.holyhill.com.
The per person cost of $50 covers round trip deluxe motor-coach transportation, salad bar lunch including soup, dessert and beverage, and snacks on the bus. We will depart St. Mary DeKalb at 7:30 AM and arrive at Holy Hill in time for reconciliation, rosary, and Mass at 11:00 AM. There will be a brief talk after Mass followed by lunch. After lunch there will be time to visit the Lourdes Grotto, walk the Outdoor Way of the Cross, visit the gift shop or climb the stairs to the top of the scenic tower if you are able and choose to do so (weather permitting) or just walk around the basilica and grounds. We will depart the basilica at 3:00 PM and arrive back at St. Mary DeKalb at about 5:30 PM. Seating is limited, so please register early!
