This is a gem of a church with a few dozen beautiful statues. It has a very unique reproduction Lourdes Grotto. We parked just nearby in a lot and is convenient to Greektown.

Old St. Mary sits in the heart of Greektown. It is a wonderful and historic Catholic church. It is filled with old detailed wall cravings and reflects the elegance and majesty of churches of old. Attending noon mass during the week is a true treat....More
