The icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa (the "Black Madonna") completed its tour through the Archdiocese of Chicago on May 16 at the Polish Mission Our Lady Mother of the Church in Willow Springs. As part of the "Ocean to Ocean" campaign, which began in Russia, the Black Madonna will continue its pilgrimage across the United States through November. The pilgrimage is being made in defense of life.
