Novena for the advancement of Venerable Solanus’ Cause for Beatification

Solanus_CaseyFr. Solanus often encouraged people to pray for vocations just as he did to discern his own calling to the Capuchin Order.  It is related in his biography that he invited his mother and sister to join him in a novena of prayer before the feast of the Immaculate Conception in 1896 to determine which Religious Order he should enter.  At the end of their novena after Holy Communion, he felt Our Lady was telling him “go to Detroit.”  That meant going to the Capuchins whose headquarters were in Detroit.  Many years later he made a short reference to this in a small notebook found among his writings.

Knowing how special this novena was for him, we at the Guild Office invite you to join us in a private novena from November 30 to December 8, ( making this in connection with Fr. Solanus’ novena)  to pray for the advancement of Venerable Solanus’ Cause for Beatification.  But as well to add your own intention for discernment of ones life’s path, with a vocation, or other special needs for yourself or loved ones.

The novena maybe prayed privately at a time and place of your own choice with prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Prayers are posted on our web site at or call (313-579-2100 ext. 161).
