Probably the prettiest church in downtown Detroit. Mass is at 12:15pm on weekdays. If you're wondering around the city, check it out even if you're not Catholic.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Detroit. Father Ed is the Patriarch there and is about to retire. He makes it worth it just as much as the beauty. Plus, you can go right to the casino after Mass!

Located in the heart of Greektown, Old St. Mary's church is one of the foundation stones of the community, with historical roots going back many decades. Even if you are not religious, if you are in the area, it's worth a visit to see it's...More

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.
