Sister Malinda Gerke holds book signing at Mary of the Angels Chapel

Members of the community had the chance to meet with a local author for a book signing.

On Sunday, St. Rose Convent Sister Malinda Gerke held a book signing at the Mary of the Angels Chapel.

Her book is titled “Mary of the Angels Chapel: God’s Answer to a Bold Promise” and gives the history of the 112 year-old chapel.

The chapel is considered by some as one of the best of it’s kind in the world and some say it is a good representation of the community.

“So much of this chapel is volunteer. In my mind, that’s typical of La Crosse. How many of the families in La Crosse have contributed to this and been part of this extraordinary building,” said Sister Malinda Gerke.
