The MARIAN CENTER FOR PEACE OF WISCONSIN RAPIDS
is a Roman Catholic association of the faithful, which seeks to follow Christ by imitating His mother Mary, in her Fiat, her perfect yes to the will of God, through prayer, study and evangelization. Its purpose is threefold:
- To encourage and promote Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
- To spread the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe through stewardship of her relic image
- To promote devotion to the Divine Mercy
Located in the former convent of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church at 241 Apricot Street, the Marian Center houses the Mother of America Perpetual Adoration Chapel where Our Eucharistic Lord is continually adored by members of the Wisconsin Rapids community. In the chapel hangs the relic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe as well as a laser image of the Vilnius Divine Mercy painting.

On January 13, 2015, the Marian Center for Peace was granted Canonical Recognition by Bishop William Patrick Callahan. It is now a private association of the faithful within the Diocese of LaCrosse. Click here to see the Decree.
