There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Michigan

When it comes to finding a place of worship, we look for a chapel that’s rich in history and tradition, a place that has stood the test of time and has served the community for generations.

In Michigan, we’ve got one very special place that has been serving Michiganders as far back as 1701. We’re talking about Ste. Anne de Detroit off Fort Street, near the Detroit River in the city of Detroit. Founded July 26, 1701, the parish of Ste. Anne de Detroit is the oldest Catholic church in the state.

Here, let’s learn some more.

Pretty awe-inspiring, isn’t it? And to think, Ste. Anne’s is right here in our own back yard. Tell us, have you been? And what are some of your favorite memories here?
