Blessed Solanus Casey Pilgrimage


Celebrating a True Franciscan

Thank God ahead of time.

- Bl. Solanus Casey, OFM Cap.

We at Modern Catholic Pilgrim are excited to lead any and all on a pilgrimage for the Feast of Bl. Solanus Casey on Saturday, July 30th to St. Michael's Catholic Church in Stillwater where the young man who was to become the future beatified Capuchin friar was confirmed.

Our Schedule:

Saturday, July 30th

8:00am - Morning Mass, Pilgrims' Blessing, and Start of Pilgrimage at the Church of St. Peter in North St. Paul

8:30am-2:00pm - Pilgrims walk in prayer along the Gateway and Brown's Creek Trails to Stillwater (stopping to eat lunch on the trail)

2:00pm - Meet up with more pilgrims at the Lift Bridge in Stillwater to walk out to the gates of MCF-Stillwater where Bl. Solanus worked before entering the Capuchins

4:00pm - Return to St. Michael Catholic Church to conclude the pilgrimage at the 4:30pm Saturday Vigil Mass

All pilgrims will be asked to make a goodwill contribution to reserve their spots on the pilgrimage.

We will work together to coordinate rides as necessary after the pilgrimage concludes. Pilgrims are responsible for their own lunches and snacks.
