One of Bishop Ricken’s first official acts after going to Diocese of Green Bay was to open a formal church investigation into the apparitions that occurred on this site. A commission of three Marian experts began their work in January 2009.

At the Dec. 8 press conference, Bishop Ricken stated, “I declare with moral certainty and in accord with the norms of the church that the events, apparitions and locutions given to Adele Brise in October of 1859 do exhibit the substance of supernatural character, and I do hereby approve these apparitions as worthy of belief (although not obligatory) by the Christian faithful.”

More information about the apparitions can be found on the shrine’s Web site at www.shrineofourladyofgoodhelp.com.
