St. Joseph Chapel & Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is OPEN!



“To Jesus with Mary.”


Days Open: Every Wednesday and Saturday, First Friday and Fridays of Lent (not Good Friday).


Hours of Operation: Open at 10:30 am and close at 1:30 pm on weekdays and 3:00 pm on Saturdays.


All are welcome to visit one of Michigan’s Marian shrines—a truly holy place where God is adored, the Blessed Virgin Mary is honored, and the Holy Spirit is experienced. We are eager to see you!


We are all invited to the lifelong pilgrimage to Heaven. Come visit us on a local pilgrimage, or join us to walk in the footsteps of Jesus in the Holy Land.


As a Franciscan ministry, we are in the spiritual tradition within the Catholic Church of St. Francis of Assisi who renewed Christians, the “living stones,” by “building” them up in the Holy Spirit with a more radical living of Jesus Christ’s Gospel

Father Alex

Franciscan Friar and priest, he loves to share God’s word and wisdom with you so we can all “be conformed to the image of [God’s] Son.” (Romans 8:29)
