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.

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 church in the heart of Detroit. A true rose in the thorn bush of life. I recommend a visit there just so see the art alone.

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.
