Overview

The second oldest Catholic Church in the United States, Ste. Anne de Detroit was founded in 1701. Following a series of tragedies and change of locations, the current church, located near the Ambassador Bridge, is the eighth Ste. Anne's and dates back to 1886. It's a finely detailed Gothic structure with flying buttresses and four gargoyles near the entrance. The wood altar was taken from the 1818 church. It has the oldest stained glass in Detroit, a beautifully hand-carved communion rail and an impressive old pipe organ. Mass is celebrated daily, with some Sunday masses in Spanish. This is one of the city's greatest architectural and historic treasures.
