EF Mass in Detroit for Beatification of Ven. Solanus Casey

There will be a special High Mass in the Extraordinary Form in honor of the beatification of Ven. Solanus Casey this Sunday, July 23, at 2:00 pm at one of Detroit’s grandest historic churches, Most Holy Redeemer. The celebrant will be Fr Ben Luedtke, locally known for his preaching and retreats; a reception will follow the Mass in the parish hall. The church is located at 1721 Junction Street.

Holy Redeemer is designed to resemble the Roman Basilica of St Paul Outside-the-Walls. The Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity staffs the parish, and their seminarians live there while attending Detroit’s Sacred Heart Major Seminary. The parish serves an Hispanic neighborhood and has thousands in attendance every weekend. EF Masses have been held there on occasion over the years, with the support of the pastor and some of the seminarians.
