Lake Orion, MI – Updated September 2018 (from June 2018) – Continuing a tradition 60 years in the making, Guest House announces this year’s Annual Detroit Bishop’s Dinner will take place Thursday, October 18, in the heart of Detroit.

Hosted by Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron, this signature evening of fellowship and inspiration begins with 4:30 p.m. Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, the mother church of the Archdiocese of Detroit. A reception and dinner follow at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

According to Jeff Henrich, Guest House president and chief executive officer, “This year, we are delighted and proud to share that the alumnus speaker will be Rev. Mark S. Stelzer, S.Th.D. He will highlight his own journey, sharing his profound gratitude and reminding us that treatment works and recovery is possible.”

Distinguished Guest House award recipients include Barbara M. Fisher, “Sister Letitia Close, BVM, Award,” Robert A. Babinski, “Bishop Kevin M. Britt Award” and (unable to attend but pleased to be honored) His Eminence Joseph W.
