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.

A beautiful old RC Church. Daily Mass at 12:10pm. Many relics in side cove. Daily confessions before Mass. Across from Greektown casino. Free parking if going to Mass.

Beautiful and historic church just outside of Greektown. The Latin mass is especially lovely - you really feel the history of the building. It has been pristinely cared for and every detail is gorgeous.

This is one of my favorite old churches in Detroit, and it is still well taken care of. My brother was married here and my son baptized. You can't help but feel a sense of peace when you enter.

It is an old well cared for church right on Monroe Street in Greektown. Stop in to see the architecture or to take a quiet rest

We are lucky enough to have such a beautiful church in our area. The carvings are so beautiful. The organ is magnificent. This is another jewel of the Detroit Area.

During a Christmas visit to the Detroit area, we stayed at the Greektown Casino Hotel, adjacent to Old St. Mary Church. Upon research with the hotel concierge, we found that this old church is still fully operational and had Christmas Eve Midnight Mass scheduled. We...More
