11th Annual Rosary Run
Our eleventh annual Rosary Run motorcycle ride will be on Saturday, June 19, 2021 (always the day before Fathers Day). While this is our eleventh year, it’s actually our tenth ride (since we didn’t ride last year), so we figured we’d get back to our roots and visit some stops from our first year.
We’ll start at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help where you can attend 8:30am Mass if you’d like. We’ll meet in the parking lot after Mass for registration, instructions, the first decade, and we’ll be on our way. We’ll stop at three Catholic churches and then finish up on the campus of St. Norbert College, with an opportunity to visit the National Shrine of St. Joseph.
Note that the times listed below are only a guide for general planning purposes; it’s not unusual for us to be an hour or more off by the end of the day. As always, we’ll travel safely at God’s pace, and allow plenty of time for prayer and impromptu discussion at each stop.

3:30ish — 5th Decade of the Rosary
We’ll pray this final decade outside at Calawerts Family Grotto of Our Lady, located on the campus along the shore of the Fox River. Then, as we wrap up, we’ll also visit the National Shrine of St. Joseph, adjacent to the grotto on campus. Fr. Mike Brennan, O. Praem. will pray with us and give us a mini tour of the shrine.
Here is the complete route map. The total distance is about 101 miles. Note that the ride begins and ends at different locations. Please be sure to gas up before we start (several fuel locations are included on the map for your reference).
All of our stops and prayers are outdoors. We will keep a safe distance from each other as we pray and you’re welcome to wear a mask if you’d like. While we don’t require a mask, we ask that you bring one in case it’s needed for any indoor activities (Mass, Shrine visitation, restroom, etc).
Please register for the event by Tuesday, June 15, 2021. We ask that each motorcycle pay a registration fee of $15.00 at the ride. All proceeds go directly to Amigos for Christ.
