Archbishop Vigneron to Celebrate Mass at Grotto 9 AM Saturday

As I have mentioned previously, Archbishop Vigneron will be at Assumption Grotto tomorrow, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. He will be celebrating a special Mass at 9:00 AM. A relic of St. Theotonius, the co-founder of the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross, is at Assumption Grotto from September 13 -16. The canons assist regularly at Assumption Grottos and sisters from the order reside on the complex in an old convent where they maintain an Adoration chapel.

From a PDF on the event:

On the occasion of the 850th anniversary of his death, during this “Year of St. Theotonius” (February 18, 2012 to February 18, 2013), a major relic from Coimbra, Portugal of the arm of St. Theotonius is on an international tour of 11 countries to all the monasteries of the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross. It will be available for veneration in the Archdiocese of Detroit at Assumption Grotto Church (13770 Gratiot Ave, Detroit) from September 13 to 16, 2012. 
As a designated Church for the veneration of the relic by Archbishop Vigneron, the Holy See has granted under the usual conditions a plenary indulgence for all who participate in an event honoring the Saint. The elderly, sick, and those unable to attend for a serious reason, are likewise able to gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions by spiritually joining in the jubilee celebrations, offering their prayers and sufferings to the merciful God through Mary.

Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit will celebrate the Holy Mass on Saturday, September 15, feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. On Sunday, September 16, a newly or- dained priest of the Order will celebrate a solemn Mass of thanksgiving. See complete schedule - click here
