Blessed Solanus Casey Novena 2021

Blessed Solanus Casey, Detroit’s beloved Capuchin priest on the road to sainthood in the Catholic Church, will be remembered at the Solanus Casey Center with a nine-day novena beginning on July 22, 2021, culminating with the Feast of Solanus Casey on July 30, 2021. The theme of the 2021 Novena is "Stretch Out Your Hand to Heal." All events are free and open to all.

Throughout the nine-day novena leading up to the feast day, the Solanus Casey Center gift shop will offer a discount of 20 percent or more off all items. Confessions will be heard by Capuchin priests from Monday through Saturday during the novena week from 9:30am to 4pm.
