First 100 Hours Vigil on Monday night

GREEN BAY - Wisconsin Interfaith Power & Light and faith-driven environmental advocates from Northeastern Wisconsin are hosting a First 100 Hours Vigil on Monday night.

The event will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Resurrection Catholic Parish, 333 Hilltop Drive, with music, prayer, reflection and a potluck meal. All are welcome to attend.

The vigil is one of six being held in the state to celebrate a common concern for God’s creation and religious unity at the start of the new presidential administration in the United States. Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the country’s 45th president Friday.

CHAMPION - The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help recently augmented its staff.

Jeff Koss was hired as operations manager, and Ashley Saxe joined the team as pilgrimage planner.

Jeff Koss volunteered at the shrine for many years and has been a volunteer religious education teacher for several parishes in the Diocese of Green Bay. He also served as president of the parish council and school board at St. Mary Parish in Luxemburg.

Saxe also has considerable familiarity with the shrine. The lifelong visitor produced and directed a documentary about the history of the shrine in 2009.

She has worked on various independent video and writing projects.
