Show-Me Memorial Weekend Pilgrimage

Believe it or not . . . Legend surrounding this very great lady is attracting Catholics from across the nation. 

With respect to everyone's superstitions . . . Here are more deets . . .

In Gower, Missouri, thousands of people are spending this Memorial Day weekend seeking a blessing, visiting the remains of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster, which are gathering attention from all across the United States. Sister Lancaster, who passed away in 2019, served at the Benedictine Mary Queen of Apostles Monastery.

Crowds arrive to find a Latin Mass being served. Attendance has grown since word of Sister Lancaster’s incorrupt remains being exhumed. When workers unearthed her corpse on April 28, intending to inter it in a new location, her remains were found to be intact — four years after her burial.

Catholics in attendance on Friday said they believe this to be a blessing from God and the makings of a modern-day miracle.

“As of Tuesday, they were seeing about 1,000 visitors a day. I think now, it’s probably well above that. The expectation is the crowd will grow over the holiday weekend,” said Ashlie Hand, a spokesperson with the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
