This is absolutely stunning church with so much history. I would highly recommend going to a service or taking a tour...very very rich with history.

We attended Old St. Mary's with our daughters Confirmation class. The church is the third oldest church in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Every Sunday at 10:00am, mass is said in Latin. Very spiritual mass to attend. Pictures do not do this church justice. You MUST see it.
