PROGRAM OVERVIEWPROGRAM OVERVIEW
Arriving at the Capuchin Retreat in Washington Michigan we will enjoy an evening meal and settle in to explore the walking trails and 95 acres of gentle meadows and quiet woodlands. This Centre of Franciscan Spirituality will be our home for the next two days. Friday evening we will join together for Evening Prayer and offer a movie about Fr. Solanus Casey’s Life for those interested. Also participants may also choose to enter a time of si-lence and personal prayer as well.
We will spend much of Saturday at the Solanus Casey Centre in Detroit, Michigan where we will have a guided tour and presentation about the person and life of Fr. Solanus Casey, ofm, cap. and his cause for beatification currently in process. Lunch will be included and Mass will be celebrated in the Friar’s Chapel before returning to the Capuchin Retreat for the evening.
Saturday evening we will once again gather for Evening Prayer following which we will offer a “Friar Side Chat” and introduction to a Franciscan Perspective on the Holy Trinity. Once again participants are free to also enter a time of silence and personal prayer as well.
