This is a silent video tour of the oldest Polish Catholic church in the United States, built in 1870. Located on St. Aubin & East Canfield near Downtown Detroit Michigan, this church has exquisite architecture inside. My wife Regina’s father Stanley, who lives with us & is 91 years old, was an altar boy here in the late 1920’s-30’s. They have guided tours throughout the mild months plus a nice Polish festival in midsummer. Notice the high arched ceilings with painted pictures and the pillars, along with many Biblical statues & Polish heritage pictures & writings.
