Join the Archdiocese of Detroit on a One-Day Pilgrimage to visit some of the most beautiful Churches in Detroit!
Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron and the Archdiocese of Detroit invite you on a one-day pilgrimage to explore the roots of our faith in Detroit by visiting our oldest and most historic churches, with the opportunity to pray with Blessed Solanus Casey and celebrate Mass with Archbishop Vigneron. Start the day with a tour of Old St. Mary’s in Greektown. Completed in 1885, the Roman style combines facets of Pisan Romanesque and Venetian Renaissance, creating a unique and beautiful structure. Enjoy time for prayer and reflection before departing to the Solanus Casey Center. Upon arrival, participate in a tour and get to know Blessed Solanus Casey, who will likely be the first Saint from Detroit. View the remains of Bl. Solanus Casey which were exhumed and reinterred in a new tomb as part of the canonical process preceding the saintly friar’s beatification Mass on November 18th, 2017. Enjoy time for personal reflection and prayer in this holy place before a special group lunch.
After lunch, visit St. Joseph Oratory, currently undergoing a Historic Renewal under the new leadership of the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, who have served and led the local faithful since October 2016. Through a tour of the Oratory, learn how the Canons have brought daily Traditional Latin Masses, regular devotions, liturgical instruction, and an active parish life into St. Joseph Oratory. As a result, the parish community continues to grow, enriching both younger and older individuals and families from all backgrounds and neighborhoods. Enjoy ample time for prayer, reflection, and confession here before to transferring to Most Holy Redeemer Church, once estimated to be one of the largest parishes in North America.
Upon arrival at Most Holy Redeemer, celebrate Mass with Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron. Special intentions will be directed toward the Archdiocese of Detroit, our mission to Unleash the Gospel and the Church at large for the reparations of sins. After Mass, conclude the pilgrimage by participating in a guided tour of Holy Redeemer, currently being served by the priests, brothers, and sisters of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT). Leverage this one-day pilgrimage as an opportunity to come together as laity and Unleash the Gospel!
