I've been to this Mass a couple of times before and it's always beyond capacity, get there early if you can. They usually have honor guards from the Detroit Police & Fire Departments, Knights of Columbus, Ancient Order of Hibernians, etc.

***NOTE LOCATION CHANGE***

St. Joseph Church normally celebrates the Solemnity of St. Joseph, their patronal feast, with a day of prayer. However, the church is temporarily closed for repairs. As such, the St. Joseph's Day festivities will take place at nearby St. JOSAPHAT.

Included in the 12 hours of prayer with 4 Masses, the last one fulfilling Sunday obligation. Also included are guided church tours, opportunities for Confession, public recitation of the Rosary, Italian dinners and much more.
