I was here a few years ago during the summer.I had to check off something below so I chose a summer month. I think I was here in 2008 or 2009.

This is a beautiful old church, built in 1842. Unfortunately, the diocese has closed the church, the last mass being held November 2, 2014. There are many repairs needed, requiring at least 10 million dollars to complete. It's a shame to lose this amazing church.

Bishop is closing due to necessary repairs and lack of funding. Shame on Catholic church since Assumption is oldest church west of Montreal

It is an old church with beautiful acoustics and therefore well suited for concerts. Located on the University of Windsor campus, close to the river.

This is a wonderfully, somewhat gothic, historic church. It is ornate and serene inside but it is in need of help. Suppor is needed for restoration and repair and one attempt at fund raising resulted in some questionable practices and, perhaps, slippage of donated funds to the fund-raisers rather than to the Church. A new campaign is in place and... More
