Almost an overwhelming presence is felt just as I walked into the main foyer. Once you take it all in, it is very relaxing, comforting and peacefull. Perfect place to come, sit, contemplae, think and pray.

This is a Church which allows you the privacy of thought--a place to dwell upon memories and to allow oneself the luxury of of introspective recall--of times past, of loves lost of family missed--a lovely oasis in a City so overburdened by its own past.

This is a beautiful, historical Catholic Church. Set in the middle of Greek Town, anyone can attend mass here. I have been fortunate enough to be a part of baptism's, Christmas Midnight Masses and of course many standard Saurday or Sunday masses. St. Mary's is a piece of Detroit History and definitely worth a visit to see the amazing architecture... More

A church that actually looks and FEELS like a church. Unfortunately often locked and check ahead to see when it is open to visitors.

This building, at the end of the Greektown block, has an attractive brick exterior and a very impressive interior. Not easily described, but worth seeing. 646 Monroe Ave, Detroit, MI 48226
