“Beautiful, old Europe influence and feel”

Old St. Mary's Church
Ranked #33 of 153 things to do in Detroit
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Was delighted to find the church open as mass was just ending. The interior of the church has a strong European influence and rivals the beauty of those in Rome. Don't forget to look up at the impressive ceiling. Make a point to visit the Blessed Mother's Grotto tucked into a back corner, a lovely retreat and place to spend quiet time in reflection and prayer. This church is a must-see!

Beautiful, inspiring, well preserved, and I could continue to go on and on. The point is, that once You are in Greektown, You probably aren't thinking about God...until You go to the Church

A beautiful church - a quiet respite in the midst of always bustling Greektown. Be sure to take time to look around - the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is a replica. There is so much to see you could make a mini retreat just by walking around.

Early churches are among some of the most interesting urban architecture. Old St. Mary's is a splendid as any with stunning stained glass windows. For the faithful, the church would surely be an inspirational place to worship.

I attended here for a Sunday service many years ago but was captivated by the traditional Catholic liturgy and the beauty of not only the building, but the worship itself. I greatly enjoyed it.
