One of the oldest catholic churches in Detroit. Very nicely maintained and close to Greektown and the restaurants.

This church is amazing, even for a non-catholic like our family. Not only the church's interior is gorgeous, the church itself has an amazing history over 200 years with 2 restorations. Needless to say, this is the most prominent Catholic church around.

We went to this church for a friends wedding and it was absolutely gorgeous! The noise inside the church was perfect, when we exited, there were loud cars being worked on/engines being revved.

We aren't Catholic, but heard it was amazing and found a Priest that was nice enough to let us inside! The architecture is amazing!

For close to 200 years, Roman Catholics have worshipped here. Rebuilt after a fire in the 1880s and restored again in 1984, this is one of the most beautiful, most respectful religious icons in America.

Great location in downtown for travelers. Across the street from Greektown Casino. Old traditional mass.

Doors are usually open so you can walk in. The place is absolutely breathtaking. Must have been a ton of mob money dumped into this church back in the day.
