Holy Hill friars "have already invited every U.S. Open contestant to attend one of several extra Masses"

Holy Hill, a castlelike Catholic basilica and shrine 3 miles from Erin Hills, is visible from 13 holes.

The 15 priests of Holy Hill, who are called friars, have already invited every U.S. Open contestant to attend one of several extra Masses scheduled to take place in their neo-Romanesque church during the event. The players can also roam the idyllic property, set on a 1,340-foot hill that was first considered a sacred site in the mid-1800s.

Asked in a recent phone interview if there was a particularly appropriate blessing for a player about to face golf's greatest crucible, one of the friars, Father Don Brick, replied, "Probably the serenity prayer."

Father Michael Berry, Holy Hill's head friar, added that he would be happy to bless golf clubs for anyone in the field.

I looked on their website but I didn't see any schedule published, but would be awesome to see a Corpus Christi procession in the backdrop of the US Open.
