Local priest blazes pilgrimage across Wisconsin

Milwaukee, Wis., Oct 27, 2013 / 05:06 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- “Pray with Mary, walk with Jesus,” is the motto of Fr. Andrew Kurz, who just finished praying and walking 120 miles in the Wisconsin countryside as part of a new pilgrimage he dubbed “The Wisconsin Way”.

Fr. Kurz began the 12-day trek along the Ice Age trail Oct. 13, starting at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in New Franken, Wis., and ending at the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians at Holy Hill in Hubertus, Wis.

The pilgrimage has been in the works since March, when Fr. Kurz was inspired by the movie “The Way”, a 2011 film about the 500-mile Camino de Santiago in Spain.
