Though the seasons are changing from summer to fall, Wawel's schedule shows no signs of slowing down. On October 23, 2011, Wawel participated in a consolidation mass for the Parishes of St. Louis the King, Transfiguration/O. L. Help of Christians, and St. Ladislaus in Detroit, Michigan. The mass' main celebrant was Bishop Hachon, of the Archdiocese of Detroit. Wawel appeared in traditional folk dress representing multiple regions of Poland during the mass' procession and recession. Following mass, members stayed to participate in a banquet celebrating the Parishes consolidation.
