Very welcoming!

Amazing architecture and statues in this old church. Don't miss the beautiful grottos in the rear of the church. Felt very welcome.

Not sure where Clifford C. went, but you would be hard pressed to find churches this beautiful in Europe. Parish is active and vibrant and welcomes thousands of visitors each year. Well worth a visit for prayer, meditation, Mass or just to soak in the architecture and beauty

Very convenient to the Greektown casino. The acoustics could be better. The architecture is appealing.

The first we went to see it, it was after 4pm, on weekday and close. So we went back next day. The church is in Greek town but it is a catholic church and walking distance from casino, restaurants and parking is $5. Mass on weekday is at 12:15pm and it is opened 11am to 2pm on weekdays. Week ends... More

On our last visit to Detroit, we were lucky to have the time to visit Greektown and stopped in at St. Mary's Church. This church is absolutely beautiful. From the stained glass to the statues and the architecture. You will be glad you stopped in. Make sure you leave a donation for the church.

This is one if not the First Catholic Churches Built in Detroit. It's a Grand Structure inside and out. Right next door to theGreek Town Casino.

This church is amazingly beautiful and right in Greek Town. I love the architecture as well as the colors of the church. The organ is HUGE and sounds FANTASTIC! I enjoyed going to mass here as well. I love the traditional way parishioners receive communion as well (kneeling).

I attended a service with approximately 1,200+ of my closest friends. It is a beautifully calming interior with a working pipe organ. It's a shame only 100 people on average attend service here.
