Must see spot when in Greektown.

This is such a gem and free at that! Anytime there's not a service taking place, you're welcome to stroll in, just be respectful.

Incredible architecture and one of few remaining churchs in the area. Very easy to locate at the edge of Greektown.

We attended one of many Masses available. It was very cool going to a Latin Mass and receiving communion at the rail. The music was amazing

This old church is a gem. The architecture is stunning and they still have mass here as usual. A beautiful church to have a wedding or just to attend services.

Old World charm and cavernous feeling once you are in the middle and see the high painted ceilings and the intricate stained glass windows.

The Church outside and inside are so extraordinary architecture . From the stained glass, solid granite columns, older wooden pews, and the beautiful grottos. The wife and I enjoyed our time here. We spent a few hours here.

This is a gorgeous old church! when you walk in it's everything you want to see in a catholic church and more. There is a beautiful stone grotto to Mary in there, and it has a great location across from Greektown Casino right in Greektown. Great place to stop in for a prayer and light a candle.
