Father Solanus Casey: Living With and Learning From America’s Newest “Blessed”

Silent Preached Retreat with Fr. Dan Crosby, OFM Cap

June 7-10, 2018  |  Cost: $275

Pope Francis wants the entire Church to know and learn from Solanus’ holiness.

On November 18, 2017, not just the Capuchins rejoiced but the whole American Church rejoiced; Pope Francis declared that Father Solanus Casey, our Wisconsin-born Capuchin brother, is to be known as BLESSED.

Father Dan lived with Father Solanus in the last year of his life. During this retreat he will share personal stories about this saintly but so-human man as well as what he has learned from him about our own journey to become holy.

Father Dan Crosby is a member of the vibrant Capuchin Franciscan community at Saint Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit. Previously, he served for 15 years as the Director of St. Anthony’s. After his ordination in 1964, he earned a licentiate in theology as well as a Masters in Theology and Religion & Personality. For 10 years, he taught theology and spirituality in Indiana and Wisconsin and spent eighteen years ministering to the poor in inner-city Milwaukee as well as at the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana. Wherever he has ministered, Fr. Dan has worked to integrate scripture as well as the Franciscan vision into his life and preaching. He has been a spiritual director and acclaimed retreat master throughout the country.

This retreat begins with 6 p.m. supper on Thursday and will conclude with the noon meal on Sunday. The cost includes delicious buffet meals, overnight accommodations and program fees.
