Thank You to Our Generous Sponsors!

“We are honored to sponsor and welcome this prestigious choir to Detroit, my hometown.”

George Schwartz
Chairman & CEO of Ave Maria Mutual Funds

“I sincerely thank you and the Lumen Institute for your efforts to coordinate the Sistine Chapel Choir visit and concert at St Patricks Cathedral and encourage our catholic community with the broader New York family to support this endeavor. The opportunity to hear the best of sacred music in the heart of New York is a gift to all those who might never have the possibility to get to Rome for the Papal Mass. Beauty is truly a gift that is work sharing, and any way we can inspire greater beauty into our city, is well worth the effort.”

Cardinal Timothy Dolan
Archbishop of New York

“It is a great honor to host the choir of the Sistine Chapel in Detroit. I am very much looking forward to their visit to our city and the opportunities this will provide for both the faithful of the Archdiocese of Detroit and for all of our neighbors and friends to see and hear the Pope’s choir. This visit is a privileged occasion for the cooperation between the Church, the civic community, and the business community to share something beautiful for everyone in southeast Michigan.”

Allen Vigneron
Archbishop of Detroit

“The visit by the Pope’s choir to Detroit promises to shine a spotlight on our city both nationally and internationally. We’re blessed to have this special opportunity and hope to leave them with fond memories of their visit to the “D.”
