A Virtuous Walk

Searching for Truth and Wisdom? Take a stroll in Shullsburg, Wisconsin!

During the mid-1800s, Venerable Samuel Mazzuchelli, OP, not only erected St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in this quaint, old lead-mining town, he also named the streets for godly virtues. For nearly 175 years, folks here have been walking down Faith, Peace, Pious, Justice, Goodness, and Friendship, not to mention Happy, Charity, and Mercy.

Ironically (or maybe not), St. Matthew’s Catholic Church sits on Judgement Street (yes, “Judgement”)!

Shullsburg is one of more than 500 intriguing faith sites featured in Monuments, Marvels, and Miracles: A Traveler’s Guide to Catholic America, available from Our Sunday Visitor (https://www.orderosv.com/product/monuments-marvels-and-miracles-a-traveler-s-guide-to-catholic-america) and Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Monuments-Marvels-Miracles-Travelers-Catholic/dp/1681923394/ref=pd_ybh_a_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BPNV7A4EQ124SFEEY96S).
