Thursday Events

Registration for events closes August 20th (or when full), unless otherwise noted.

Detroit Churches & Solanus Casey Shrine Pilgrimage

Visit six magnificent Michigan churches on a guided tour that includes stops at churches dedicated to Our Lady and some of your favorite saints. Enjoy historical presentations, Mass, silent Adoration, song, and prayer teams ready to lift up your intentions with you at these seriously stunning local churches. They are staffed by a variety of religious communities and diocesan priests. You can visit the tomb of Blessed Solanus Casey, a humble Detroit miracle worker, who is still at work. We will enjoy our sack lunch, prepared by the Capuchin’s Rise Up! Cafe, on the grounds of St Joseph Shrine, where you can glean a plenary indulgence by visiting this year! Bring a little extra cash for lighting candles, a dessert purchase at the bakery or for something special from the Capuchin gift shop!

These Detroit churches are extraordinary. Photos offer a glimpse. Appreciating the beauty of these particular churches, the power of the pilgrimage, goes beyond words. It requires the experience of it! If you are thirsty for beauty, or ready to share in it, join us! We have a wait list ready should we need another bus. If the tour cost is prohibitive, please contact Catholic Church Tours for alternatives: info

Catholic Church Tours is a not-for-profit, run entirely by volunteers. All our funds go directly back into opening the doors of our Churches for others to enter, see, learn and appreciate. 

Time: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Cost: $69.50 – covers transportation, guided pilgrimage and lunch

Hosted by Nell A. and Keri T.
