Dec. 21 TOUR  Detroit  Church  Tour    
($35)    (9:00-5:15)

1- METROPOLITAN  METHODIST  CHURCH-this was the LARGEST METHODIST  CHURCH in the world when it was built  in the 1920′s!!!!!   I heard Norman Vincent Peale  speak to a “packed house”  in the 1970′s. (How to Win Friends  and Influence People)

2- First Congregational Church–Today this church conducts Underground Railroad (UGRR) Tours. Historically, this  church was located right where Cobo Arena is today. At that time the church was actively involved in the UGRR. They were near Canada and they were clever in their disguises.  For example, they pretended to be burying a person, but, at the last minute they let the  enslaved person get in a boat and escape to Canada!

3- St. John’s Episcopal Church– We PRAY  for the TIGERS.  Located right next to Comerica Park this church has beautiful Tiffany Windows.  Minister Steven Kelly has really bought this church back!

4-  LUNCH– You will have your choice of RESTAURANTS–Gold Cash  Gold, Slow’s, or the the Mercury Bar.

5- HOLY  TRINITY  CHURCH– 3rd  oldest  Catholic Church  in Detroit. Father Kohler was a priest there for many years.  He passed away last year—-such a loss!   Father Kern was also a longtime priest.

6-ST.  ALOYIUS  CHURCH– This church is famous for having three levels. A priest could look straight ahead and see three levels of people. He looked down and he saw people in what could be  called the basement.  He looked up and there was the balcony filled with people. The priest made a joke of the “naked ladies” on the BOOK  TOWER across the street.

7-  THE  DOWNTOWN  SYNAGOGUE-  This Jewish Institution is making a great comeback under the leadership of Arlene Frank. It is located in Capitol Park  which is really CHANGING. Thank Dan Gilbert.
