Rich in history and beautifully constructed. Churches usually have some of the most exquisite art work in terms of woodwork, stain glass, statuary and sculptures.

You get a taste of Detroit's French roots when you visit Ste. Anne de Detroit. The tomb of Fr. Gabriel Richard is here as well, who was one of the founders of University of Michigan.

Almost an overwhelming presence is felt just as I walked into the main foyer. Its old style, plain yet beautiful. Once you take in the history and sanctity of the church, it is very relaxing, comforting and peacefull. Perfect place to come, sit, contemplae, think and pray.
