St. Bonaventure Monastery
Founded in 1883, St. Bonaventure Monastery is home to many of the Detroit Capuchin friars. Its presence is an anchor for the neighborhood of lower Eastside of Detroit. Its lit steeple provides a pathway to those seeking peace in the adjacent Monastery Chapel and Solanus Casey Center. The grounds of the Monastery are periodically open for special Capuchin events.
Many of our Detroit Capuchin ministry directors reside in the monastery as well as our retired friars who are now living a life of prayer and reflection. Donations earmarked for the retired friars are always welcomed.
St. Bonaventure Monastery is located at 1820 Mt. Elliott St.; Detroit, MI 48207.
