America's Favorite Place of Pilgrimage (Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians Chapel at Holy Hill, Wis.
|City, State||Erin, WI|
|Notes||The church interior suggests sacred and unspeakably precious memories to those multitudes who have felt the burdens of life removed -- and the health of soul and body restored -- before leaving its hallowed portals. On special days of pilgrimage the approach to the confessionals are thronged with visitors who willingly wait -- sometimes for hours -- to avail themselves of the holy Sacrament of Penance, as the essential crowning event and fulfillment of their wholesome exercises of mortification and contrition during their pilgrimage.|
