Solanus Center

The Solanus Casey Center, located in Detroit, MI, is a world class spiritual center. Inspired by the holy life of Father Solanus, the Solanus Casey Center opened its doors in 2002 in order to lead visitors on a spiritual journey.

Father Solanus Casey was a beloved Capuchin friar credited with miraculous cures and valued for his wise and compassionate counsel. He faithfully served the people of Detroit by providing soup for the hungry, kind words for the troubled, and a healing touch for the ill.

In 1960, the Father Solanus Guild initiated the Cause of Solanus Casey for sainthood. In 1995, Pope John Paul II declared Solanus Casey “Venerable.” One miraculous cure attributed by the Vatican to the intercession of Venerable Solanus will advance the Cause to Beatification and the title of “Blessed.” Another approved miracle after that will advance the Cause finally to Sainthood.
