Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be here with his very special ministry to teach about these holy objects. He will bring with him over 150 relics, some as old as 2000 years. Among the treasures will be relics of St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the “Little Flower”), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. In addition, there will also be present a portion of the veil of Our Lady, as well as one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world. Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic. In the Church’s history many miracles and healings have been worked in the presence of relics, and many have been healed through this ministry.
On Sunday, November 24, celebrate this special day with a Noon Mass at the Solanus Casey Center with celebrant Bishop Michael Byrnes. Held at the St. Bonaventure Chapel, 1780 Mount Elliott, Detroit.

YOU ARE THE GENERATION THAT WILL ABOLISH ABORTION!
Blessed John XXIII Latin Mass Community will host Assumption Grotto (Detroit) choir directed by Fr. Eduard Perrone at St. Mary Cathedral (main church, not chapel) on the Last Sunday of the Liturgical Year. The evening begins with a prelude of organ music. The choir will then sing sacred polyphony from the Renaissance in its intended context: the Solemn High Mass of the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite (Tridentine RIte). Included will be all the rituals that make it a sacred, solemn, reverent, and transcendent experience. This is a rare event. The full Solemn High Mass is not celebrated often; even less often with polyphony performed by an accomplished choir.
This is an opportunity to experience and enjoy the beautiful, yet so-often forgotten, Sacred Music of the Church as it was meant to be experienced!
As stated in the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of Vatican II: “116. The Church acknowledges Gregorian chant as specially suited to the Roman liturgy: therefore, other things being equal, it should be given pride of place in liturgical services. But other kinds of sacred music, especially polyphony, are by no means excluded from liturgical celebrations, so long as they accord with the spirit of the liturgical action, as laid down in Art. 30.”
Blessed John XXIII Latin Mass Community is a personal parish of the in Diocese of Lansing. It was established in 2010 & is is dedicated to the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite (Tridentine Rite).
Open to people of all faiths.
