On Monday, July 24, Most Rev. Francis Y. Kalabat, Bishop of our diocese, celebrated the annual St. Anne Novena Mass at the Basilica of Ste. Anne in Detroit. Every year, the basilica celebrates a ten-day Novena event, with each day of prayer associated with a different ethnic group important to Detroit. Night seven of the novena welcomed our Chaldean community.
Following Mass, the novena to St. Anne was prayed while a statue of St. Anne was processed around the church. As always, a very big thank you to Ste. Anne de Detroit for welcoming our community each year to celebrate mass with them!
