An image from the George Kovach Holy Hill collection, AUTUMN AT HOLY HILL shares the fall traditions of changing leaf colors and apple picking under the comforting view of the Basilica.
"Holy Hill is located in southeast Wisconsin, on the highest elevation in that part of the state, situated on 435 acres of rural countryside.
"As early as 1903, Holy Hill was declared a Shrine of Mary, Help of Christians. In 2006, the Shrine was raised to the status of Minor Basilica. But as far back as the 1700s and perhaps earlier, the American Indians came to Holy Hill because they considered it a sacred place." -- official website of Holy Hill
"As summer gives way to the breathtaking beauty of autumn, I'm once again drawn to that place I have come to know and love, Holy Hill...I bring back to light memories that seem not so long ago. Soon the brightly colored leaves will give way to the cold chill of winter, leaving fond memories of "Autumn at Holy Hill." --George Kovach
