The feast of Corpus Christi on Thursday, June 15, 2017, marked the first visit to Detroit of Msgr. Gilles Wach, Founder & Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. A Solemn High Mass was offered by Msgr. Wach, with Canon Michael Stein as deacon and Canon Edward Gardner, a native son of Detroit, as subdeacon.  

StJoseph Oratory in Detroit celebrated its patronal feast day on Monday, March 20, the Solemnity of StJoseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, with a daylong StJoseph Day of Prayer.  It was a grace-filled occasion not only for clergy and parishioners of the Oratory, but also for visiting clergy, religious, seminarians, and faithful from around the Archdiocese of Detroit and beyond, including pilgrims from other Institute apostolates.   

Sunday, February 5 was a blessed day in Detroit, as His Grace the Most Reverend Allen H. Vigneron, Archbishop of Detroit, visited St. Joseph Oratory to install Reverend Canon Michael Stein as Pastor. 

The Institute celebrated a beautiful and moving first Christmas at the newest apostolate in the United States, St. Joseph Oratory in Detroit.  Canon Michael Stein and Deacon Jonathon Fehrenbacher are grateful for the faithful who worked so diligently with them to prepare for Christmas...
