Catholic Father’s Day Detroit Michigan
June 19, 2021 at 1:00 pm EDT
A CALL TO ALL GOD’S PEOPLE TO UNITE WITH CHRIST
On Saturday, June 19th, 2021, the day before this year’s Father’s Day the city of Detroit will be consecrated to St. Joseph with this year’s UNITE OUR NATION Father’s Day Eucharistic Procession. The UNITE OUR NATION – DETROIT, is a lay grassroots, non-political organization formed to help bring peace and prayer to local communities and healing to our nation and families.
In these times of great upheaval, fear and disorientation, it is important for us to give light to the world by making visible our faith in our Eucharistic Lord. God wants to manifest His miracles within His people. He wants us to very much be the vehicles of His Grace and Love within the world. He calls us to LOVE WITH ENDURANCE!
Come join us as we take our faith and our Lord to the streets, sanctifying our homes, communities, cities and nation.
The procession will start at St. Aloysius Catholic Parish (1234 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226) at 1:00 PM and then will move to Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church (646 Monroe St, Detroit, MI 48226) and then on to Holy Family (641 Chrysler Dr, Detroit, MI 48226) and will come to its conclusion at St. Joseph Shrine (1828 Jay St, Detroit, MI 48207) at 330 PM. The route will extend 1.6 miles across the city of Detroit.
