Church Festivals: St. Florian Strawberry Festival May 7-8

It's Spring, so it is the beginning of Church Festival season!

I probably missed one already, but tonight starts the St. Florian Strawberry Festival!

This is as good of an excuse as any (except Holy Mass, but you can go to that too) to visit 1929's best new church! Here is the Schedule:

If you come you can see vestments of Blessed John Paul II which are on display in the Sanctuary. (Or at least they have been all week) Other features to check out are the Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Czestochowa chapels which are located off of the vestibule. I don't know if they have guided tours, but the Church will be open.

I'll try to keep you all apprised of other Festivals. These festivals are a great way to support the historical and beautiful Churches of Detroit!

What are you waiting for? Get down to St. Florian!

If you would like your church's festival featured send me an e-mail or write in the comments.
