Our Lady of Fatima graces St Josaphat's

St Josaphat's was a cool visit yesterday! One, the statue of Our Lady of Fatima was on display there and two, what an opportunity to visit an historical church in Detroit that is nationally registered! You know this lovely place. Everyone drives by it heading south on I-75 by the Mack Avenue exit. Haven't you always wondered about this looming red orange brick tower and wanted to go in? It's a beautiful edifice, Polish in origin, and over 100 years old. The Black Madonna behind the altar (also known as Our Lady of Czestochowa) is one of the church's treasures. They celebrate a Mass every Thursday at noon in her honor. But, Our Lady of Fatima is on a perpetual traveling journey! We are blessed to have her in Michigan for the next couple of weeks. Here's her Michigan schedule: fatima

  1. I came accross your blog while looking for some Church related images. I would like to ask permission to print (at some photo place) this picture. I am a member of St. Josaphat in Detroit and back in 2009, I was unable to go to my parish church when the statue was there. It is only now that I am seeing such a photo from St. Josaphat. Thanks
