This 60th Anniversary event will take place at the Mother Church of the Archdiocese of Detroit, the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and the Detroit Institute of Arts. We welcome you to join us for a special evening of celebration to support the healing ministry of Guest House.

Plan to bring a friend and share awareness of the Guest House mission!

Following Mass, guests enjoy a reception and sumptuous plated dinner. The evening’s program includes awards presented to honorees who exemplify the Guest House mission and today’s involved Catholic. The highlight of the evening is a Guest House alumnus speaker whose story always succeeds in inspiring all those present.

Attended by over 350 guests annually, this signature event includes dignitaries, influential business leaders, church leadership and key benefactors.

Funds raised by the Detroit Bishop’s Dinner help support programs, treatment and scholarships for Catholic clergy and men and women religious seeking recovery at Guest House.
