St. Florian Church and Parish, located in Hamtramck along with the Hamtramck Firefighters host an annual Firefighter March and Mass the first Saturday in May. (Please check our Events page or the front page of this site).
This unique event marks the feast day of St. Florian, patron saint of all firefighters. Please join us in commemorating this occasion by participating in a formal March that begins at 3:00 pm at the Hamtramck Firehouse and end at St. Florian Church for a 4:00 pm Mass (you are not obligated to attend or participate in the Mass). Departments with an Honor Guard are encouraged to join us and all rigs are welcome; please contact the firehouse in advance so that we may plan accordingly.
All firefighters, retirees, and their families are welcome to participate in this special celebration. This will be an excellent opportunity for all firefighters to unite in brotherhood and remember their fallen heroic comrades. This will also be a great time to enjoy the Parishes’ Strawberry Festival where good food, drink and music will end the days’ activities.
The firehouse is located at 2625 Caniff, approximately 2 blocks east of I-75 from the Caniff exit.
St. Florian Church is located at 2626 Poland, approximately ½ mile south of the firehouse.
