A PLACE OF PRAYER, PEACE, & PILGRIMAGE

Little Loretto is a Bed and Breakfast dedicated to hosting pilgrims for the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The main entrance from the Shrine is only a 5-minute drive; but if you would like some exercise, then the delightful walk over the ridge, down the winding county road, and through the woods would take about an hour. (That ridge, by the way, has a beautiful view of the Mississippi River to the west and another breathtaking view of the valley to the northeast.) 


Two bedrooms (breakfast included) are available for pilgrims. The Sacred Heart Room is especially dedicated to the Sacred Heart of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This room has a spacious, king-size bed, a dresser, a desk, and a large walk-in closet. The bathroom has a stand-up shower, a jacuzzi bathtub, and a private toilet. All who stay in this room are particularly commended to the mercy of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Immaculate Heart Room is especially dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Mother of God. This charming room has a very comfortable four-poster bed, a dresser, an armoire and closet, as well as a private bathroom. All who stay in this room are particularly commended to the motherly intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

 

Catholic priests who have come on retreat are encouraged to offer mass at the Shrine. However, if a priest is unable to do so because of unforeseeable circumstances, such as inclement weather, after hours, illness, etc., Little Loretto offers an appropriate setting to offer private mass. This space in Little Loretto does not have a tabernacle or reserve the Blessed Sacrament, and is not intended for public divine worship. It is merely an extension of hospitality to visiting priests.

THE SHRINE OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

 The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin, remains faithful to the message of the Blessed Virgin Mary through her appearances on the American continent in 1531. The Shrine also serves the spiritual needs of those who suffer poverty in body and soul. It is a place of ceaseless prayer for the corporal and spiritual welfare of God’s children, especially those in most need.
