Adoration Chapel

Perpetual Adoration Chapel Adoration

At Holy Redeemer we are fortunate to have a Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel in the northeast corner of the church. The Adoration Chapel was established in 1993 as a special way for Catholics in Genesee County to spend quality time with our Eucharistic Lord. Committed adorers spend the same hour(s) each week in Adoration, and we encourage you to join them. You DO NOT need to be a member of Holy Redeemer to be a committed adorer.

If you cannot commit to a specific time each week, we invite you to take advantage of this holy and prayerful place. We also have a list of people, who even though they cannot commit to a time, are willing to be substitutes when an adorer is unavailable. Please contact Bethine Sordyl-Crookedacre at (810) 249-PRAY (7729) to learn more.

Parish History

Holy Redeemer Roman Catholic Church was founded in 1940 after a group of men from the south end of Flint took a census and found over 300 Catholic families in the area. They presented their findings to the Bishop as proof that there was a need for a church in the southern end of Flint. Bishop Joseph H. Albers sent four seminarians to take another census that confirmed the findings of the original census. The Reverend Louis P. Gauthier was assigned the task of founding a parish in Burton Township. Approval for the parish was given on September 7, 1940 and the first two Masses were celebrated on September 22, 1940 in the Burton Theater. Bishop Albers presided over one of them. Daily Mass was celebrated in the basement of Leo Chauret’s home on Buder Street, which was also the first residence of Fr. Gauthier. The old Bendle School on Saginaw Street was utilized for Mass, the Sacraments, instruction classes and Bingo. Most of the Parish Societies were operating within a month. Ground was broken on July 25, 1941 with the Cornerstone ceremony on September 28 and the basement of the building was first used October 20. Mass began being offered in the new building as soon as the roof was on and Midnight Mass was celebrated that Christmas. On April 26, 1942, Bishop Albers dedicated the new church. In 1946, the first school building and convent were completed and over 400 children began school. In November, 1959, the first Mass in the new church was offered and the Church was dedicated by Bishop Albers on September 18, 1960. In 1965, the State of Michigan bought up the property on the east side of S. Grand Traverse to put a new expressway , I-475, through. This necessitated the building of a new convent and rectory. Work began on the convent in 1966 and opened the summer of 1967. The new rectory, which was attached to the church, was opened to the priests in 1968. In the 1990’s a new, state of the art Family Life Center was built on the north end of the property where the old bus garage used to stand. It is for rent for parties, weddings and other get togethers. In June, 1970, the last high school class graduated as Luke M. Powers opened and all catholic high school students would be transferring there. The elementary school closed in 2009.
