OK...I have good news and bad news. The good news is that Nativity has been given 200 tickets to attend the Beatification Mass for Solanus Casey on November 18th at 4PM at Ford Field. The bad news is that we have to secure the 200 places with names and have them sent in by Wednesday, August 16th. This means we have to move quickly! I realize this is the picnic weekend and not everyone will get a bulletin but I also know that word of mouth goes through our grapevine very quickly! So, if you know someone who would like to attend this celebration please have them call the Parish House before Wednesday and secure a place for themselves. We would like to limit tickets to 4 per household/family until everyone has a chance to participate. The if there are more spaces available, we can offer them on a first come/first serve basis. Once the 200 tickets are distributed, there will be no other tickets available.
I truly hope our parish will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to celebrate the life of Solanus Casey as well as the faith of the Church of Detroit. This is truly an historic moment for the Church and the City of Detroit. I don't suspect we will have another local beatification in our lifetime. So let's come together with many people of faith throughout the metro Detroit area and celebrate God's grace in the life of Solanus and in all of our lives!
