Solanus Casey Center 

“I have two loves: the sick and the poor,” said Fr. Solanus Casey. Thank God: That includes all of us! Don’t we all suffer both sickness and poverty in body, mind, or spirit at one time or another?

Dedicated to the memory of The Capuchin Franciscan brother, Blessed Solanus Casey (beautified in 2017), the center provides a place of pilgrimage, healing, reconciliation, and peace for visitors everywhere. The Center includes outdoor contemplative gardens, as well as the Tomb of Blessed Solanus Casey, and On the Rise Café, a ministry of the historic Capuchin Soup Kitchen, still in operation today.

Inspired by the life and example of our brother, Blessed Solanus Casey, this Center strives to be a place of pilgrimage, healing, reconciliation and peace. The Solanus Casey Center was dedicated by His Eminence Cardinal Adam Maida, Archbishop of Detroit, in 2002 as a ministry of the Capuchin Franciscan Friars of the Province of St. Joseph. The Center has served as a spiritual oasis for hundreds of thousands of pilgrims of various faiths and backgrounds from around the world each year.
