Catholic men are invited to honor the Blessed Mother by taking part in a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Saturday, Oct. 10.

Bishop Andrew Cozzens, who will lead the pilgrimage, urged men across the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to “come and be renewed and strengthened in your desire to be a Catholic man.”

The pilgrimage is sponsored by the archdiocesan Office of Evangelization and Catechesis in partnership with Catholic Man Night.

“The pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe is an excellent opportunity for Catholic men of our archdiocese to get away from all the daily stress of life and enjoy fraternity and have much needed opportunity for some silence and prayerful examination of their lives,” Bishop Cozzens noted.

“Even short pilgrimages like this one are great opportunities to grow in our faith,” he added. “We will be praying in a special way for our families to Our Lady of Guadalupe who is the patroness of the culture of life we desire to build in our Catholic homes.”

Buses will pick up pilgrims at three churches:

  • Transfiguration:
    6133 15th St. N., Oakdale
  • Our Lady of Grace:
    5071 Eden Ave., Edina
  • St. John the Baptist:
