The Green Bay Packers
With a population of just over 104,000 Green Bay is the smallest city to host an NFL team and it's the only team owned by a non-profit corporation of individual stockholders from around the world! Beyond an impressive 13 national championships, the Packers are known locally for their extensive financial support of non-profit organizations. For example, the Packers have hosted the annual Bishop's Charities Game for 57 years, donating more than $3.9 million to help support Catholic Charities for the Diocese of Green Bay since 1960.
During the 2018 Catholic Media Conference, you will have the opportunity to visit and tour Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers.
The national shrine of our lady of good help
the site of the only approved marian apparition in the united states
The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is a Marian shrine located about 16 miles northeast of Green Bay in Champion, Wisconsin. It is the only Church-approved Marian apparition site in the United States. Here, the Queen of Heaven appeared to Adele Brise, a Belgium-born young adult immigrant, in October of 1859.
As part of the 2018 Catholic Media Conference, you will have the chance to attend Mass at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help and stand where Adele encountered the Blessed Mother over 150 years ago.
