The St. Bonaventure Monastery Chapel at the Solanus Casey Center will be closed for renovation starting Monday, August 27. The renovations of the chapel will be historically inspired from the time Bl. Solanus was the porter of the monastery. The new worship space will follow current liturgical norms and be able to accommodate more pilgrims for Mass and services. The steeples of the chapel have already been renovated.
During construction of the chapel’s interior and roof, our daily 7:45 AM Mass will be held in the friar’s chapel. Our Sunday 9am Mass will be held in the center's dining room. The Solanus Casey Center will remain open during construction. Confessions are on their normal schedule and Bl. Solanus’ tomb will still be accessible during our normal hours, 9am to 5pm daily. We are hopeful the renovations will be completed by December 1. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
