1st Anniversary of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Today, the beautiful shrine church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, designed by architect Duncan Stroik, celebrated the 1st anniversary of its dedication, with Archbishop Raymond Burke as the celebrant of the Mass.

Archbishop Burke was formerly the Bishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, where the shrine church is located. He has since served as Archbishop of St. Louis, and is now the Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome.

One of our readers, a seminarian, decided to attend the Mass and took a few cell phone photographs.

The altar was setup for the Mass with the "Benedictine arrangement"

After Mass

If more photos are forthcoming, particularly of the Mass itself, the NLM will make certain to publish them.
