Please join us to tour Assumption Grotto Roman Catholic Church (13770 Gratiot Ave, Detroit, MI) on April 6, 2014. We will begin at their 12:00 PM Mass.
The church’s origins can be traced to 1830 when German immigrants first arrived in Detroit. A unique feature of the church grounds is the grotto, a shrine located in the parish cemetery. It was inspired by the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes. The replica was dedicated in June, 1881.
Linda Davis has agreed to give us a tour after we attend the 12:00 Mass. If the pastor, Fr. Eduard Perrone has time, he will give us a quick overview of the church; otherwise, Linda then will take us outside to the Grotto. (Benediction and the Rosary follow Mass.)
If you would like to participate in helping them in their outreach program – please bring a $10 gift card for groceries or gas.
Anyone interested in attending needs to let Carol know. She can fill you in on details about the brunch. If you are interested in carpooling, please meet at Reschke’s house around 10:45.
