Situated at Howard near the Ambassador Bridge, the cornerstone for the present St.Anne de Detroit Catholic Church was laid in 1886. The original church was built in 1701 and for various reasons rebuilt eight times.
Outside the building you will see the flying buttresses and four gargoyles guarding the main entrance. Inside the church you will see the oldest stained glass in Detroit. Also notice treasures such as the main altar, the 1818 cornerstone, the beautifully hand carved communion rail, the huge bell and the statue of St. Anne and her daughter, Mary. See the 26-rank pipe organ. Also visit the chapel which has a wooden altar from the church built in 1818.
You may patronise the gift shop selling items like holy books, key chains, tote bags, sweatshirt and golf shirt among many others. You can buy directly from the gift shop or even order online.

Ste. Anne De Detroit Catholic Church Reviews & Ratings
Ste. Anne is a beautiful historic church that held sentimental value in my heart as it was the church my parents were married in over 35 years ago. I was so happy to be married there - however, the ladies that run the weddings at Ste. Anne were not the best. Most times I felt that any question I asked I was bothering them and that they did not want to deal with me. My husband and I did six months of marriage prep but at the end, no one collected anything we had worked hard to get done. In one email I was addressed as "Queen" which I took as very rude due to the fact that I was simply asking questions since I have never been married before and did not know how this process worked. I was a very anxious and nervous bride and these ladies did nothing to make me feel better. There were many times they emailed me with wrong names and dates and they lost my baptism/communion/confirmation certificates twice and offered no help to get that information after losing it. It got to a point where I wondered if we would even be remembered that our wedding was happening. The priest - Fr. Ryan was amazing! He was as helpful as could be - unfortunately, he was unable to marry us due to a mission trip but he found Deacon Drew to do so which was extremely helpful and Deacon Drew did a fantastic job. Overall, the day went well and I was very happy but the process felt very exhausting and stressful.
I use to go to this church when I wanted to go to mass on Saturday. This church is truly Beautiful and very old. This church is the most beautiful church I have ever seen. If you are by Ste. Anne Church stop by, make sure you check all the doors because they just might be open.
Beautiful ❤️ The Father looks and sounds like Justin Timberlake so it was amusing. Besides that, the message was very good and people are friendly and welcoming. For a newer Catholic, like myself, this is important.
A very beautiful church. The Rendezvous was a nice event. Learned about the history of Detroit.
A very beautiful church. The third annual Rendezvous was great as well.
