Fr. Solanus Casey Symposium
Date: Saturday, October 28, 2017
| 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM
Fr. Solanus Casey was a member of the Capuchin Franciscan Order of St. Joseph as well as one of the founders of Detroit’s Capuchin Soup Kitchen. He was best known for his miraculous cures, compassionate counsel, and service of the poor. In 1995, Pope John Paul II declared him as “venerable” and more recently Pope Francis has announced that Fr. Solanus will be “beatified”, a significant step toward his canonization as a saint.
As a prelude to our celebration of Fr. Solanus' beatification in November, Sacred Heart Major Seminary is hosting a one-day symposium on October 28, 2017. All are welcome to attend and enjoy a day of prayer and keynote presentations on the life of Fr. Solanus. Mass will be celebrated by Msgr. Todd J. Lajiness, Sacred Heart Major Seminary rector. Lunch will be provided.
Please register online as space is limited. Registration is free but a freewill offering will be collected. Proceeds will benefit the Capuchin Franciscan Province of St. Joseph.
