Video Tour of the Solanus Casey Center

Father Larry Webber provides a video tour of the Solanus Casey Center and encourages all on their own personal journey to holiness.

The Face of Faith Found In Solanus Casey

Capuchin Friar Michael H. Crosby, well-known international speaker and author of seventeen award winning books, explores and applies Solanus Casey's understanding of faith in a way that speaks to the hearts of those who listen. He will show that without this faith, we can't truly love God, much less put our hope in God. Father Mike is the author of the Positio for the Cause of Canonization of Solanus Casey, OFM Cap. Its acceptance by Pope John Paul II resulted in him being named 'Venerable' the first U.S. born male to receive that title.

Father Solanus & Spiritual Outsiders

Capuchin Friar Martin Pable discusses examples of Father Solanus' ministry to unbelievers and those who have drifted away from their faith. Like Jesus, Solanus' heart wept for those who had given up practicing their faith. You will reflect on how we might embody some of those attitudes in our own relationships with these "spiritual outsiders."

Fr. Solanus & Young Adults: Living an Integrated Life

Capuchin Friar Jack Rathschmidt discusses how young people today live an incredibly fast-paced life. They are constantly connected to the on-line world in many ways. Young people will hear examples of how Father Solanus handled stress. All will learn to use their faith as their foundation while managing their lives with more meaning.
