The Beauty of the Bay

A long weekend in Wisconsin kept me quite busy, with five church visits during the daylight hours as well as a couple of nights in a hunting lodge (that’s the focus of the profile).

It started at St. Norbert’s, home to the National Shrine of St. Joseph, a parish run by the Norbertines located just outside Green Bay. It’s also the home parish of my publisher, who I met for the first time in person.

Saturday night took me to St. Jude the Apostle in Oshkosh, followed by Sunday Masses at the Kaukauna Catholic Parishes, a tri-parish community. I attended the liturgy at Holy Cross and St. Katharine Drexel-St. Mary, while sneaking over to St. Katharine-St. Francis just to check it out.

As you’ll see below, all of the locations I visited are pretty darn beautiful.
