Houses of the Holy
We’ve long contended Detroit’s houses of worship are architectural jewels and historical treasures as they provide great insight into the city’s rich history. Our Houses of the Holy tours take you inside these masterpieces where docents from each historic house of worship will enlighten us regarding the art and architecture found inside their respective sanctuaries and touch upon the influence church leaders and parishioners have made within the community and how they continue to do so.
