This Catholic church, in Greektown, near casinos and some of the best eating you will ever do, is a breathtaking peek into rich pageantry. Main chapel is huge and awe-inspiring, and the side chapels are intimate and evocative of walking into a cathedral in Spain...More

I was on my way to Greektown Casino when I spotted the church which is right next door. Couldn’t hurt to say a few prayers before playing? The church is gorgeous outside and inside, with fantastic stained glass windows and a huge organ. Very old...More

Beautiful Catholic Church in Greektown in downtown Detroit. Mass daily at 12:15 pm. Appreciate the surroundings and give yourself a minute to sit and reflect.

I'm very biased when it comes to Old St. Mary's since I got married here in 2011! I had grown up loving the beautiful church and the Greektown neighborhood, and luckily my now-husband fell in love with it too. I don't live in Michigan anymore,...More

We stayed next door at Greektown Casino, many times. We finally had the opportunity to go in the church- amazing. So beautiful, so much history. The grottos inside are stunning. You do not need to be religious to appreciate the beauty of this church.

If you are traveling downtown Detroit you must top in the Old St. Mary's. It's just a quick walk from the ball parks in Greektown. Visit and pray for your loved ones. Then grab a gyro and enjoy the evening.

I have been here several times including a wedding and it is a gorgeous church. The architecture was inspiring and I felt like I was really in a church. They don't make them like this anymore!

There is free parking in the lot next door BUT you need to tell the attendant you are there for Church.
