Pilgrimage: Experience exciting, joyful, prayer-filled for Madison Sister
MADISON -- Sr. Marcia Vinje has returned to Madison, but her heart is still in Europe.
She was a member of the North American delegation joining about 1,000 Schoenstatt pilgrims at the recent international gathering of members of lay movements in Rome.
A German priest, Fr. Joseph Kentenich (1885-1968), founded the Schoenstatt Marian Apostolic Movement, a Catholic lay movement of religious renewal.
Started in Germany
Prior to the gathering, Sister Marcia and the American Schoenstatts began their pilgrimage in Germany. "We came from all four corners of the United States and from Canada, so we didn't know each other. The week in Schoenstatt was an opportunity to get to know each other." Full story ...

Thus, the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis invites the people of the Diocese of Madison to a family potluck cookout on Sunday, July 23, at the Bishop O'Connor Catholic Pastoral Center (BOCPC), 702 S. High Point Rd., Madison. Full story ...
