Make a stop at four different churches in Detroit and learn about their interesting history and beautiful architecture.
Visit and tour these four unique churches:
Christ Church Detroit—Christ Church Detroit occupies the oldest, continuously used Protestant religious site in the city of Detroit. Founders of the congregation included Henry N. Walker, owner and editor of the Detroit Free Press, and Charles Christopher Trowbridge, banker and philanthropist, whose descendants still worship at Christ Church today.
Historic Trinity Lutheran—Historic Trinity Lutheran Church was founded in 1850 as the first Missouri Synod Lutheran Church in Detroit. The finest in liturgical art can be found in Historic Trinity’s stone, glass, wood, tile and brass. Its style is 16th century Pier and Clerestory Gothic, similar to that seen only in the great cathedrals of Europe.
Ste. Anne de Detroit– In 1701, twenty-five canoes glided to a stop at the foot of a high bluff which ran along a narrow part of the Detroit River near where Hart Plaza is today. French explorer Cadillac and his party began construction including a chapel that was dedicated to Ste. Anne. The parish has gone through many changes in its 300-plus years of history but the basilica stands and is used for worship daily.
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul—Instituted in 1824, St. Paul’s has the distinction of being the first of the organized parishes of the Episcopal Church in the Northwest. The building boasts soaring, pointed arches, wide expanses of stained glass, and elaborate tracery, exemplary of Gothic architecture. It includes a large architectural installation of Pewabic Pottery The funeral service for Henry Ford, the entrepreneur who catalyzed development of the automobile industry in Detroit, was held at Cathedral Church of St. Paul.
