Cathedral of St Paul's in Detroit

The Episcopalian Cathedral of St Paul's is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. Established in 1824 in the Detroit area, it was the first protestant church in Michigan, before it even became a state! The architect, Ralph Cram, studied the gothic style in France and built the cathedral using medieval construction techniques (no steel!). The imposing structure, loaded with indigenous pewabic tile, stands on the corner of Woodward and Warren Avenue and is a very active congregation. They offer breakfast on Sunday mornings for everyone. Jeremy Tarrant is the outstanding organist who also leads the renowned Men and Boys choir.
