What a gorgeous church. St Thomas Apostle Catholic Church is well worth a visit, whether for the architecture or the spiritual/religious experience.

We were members of this church for several years. It's a beautiful facility, especially on the outside. But it's super conservative--the most conservative in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area. If you're looking for a more liberal church St. Mary's Student Parish is a much better fit.

For a second time, I was privileged to hear "Ave Maria" sung in this historic Catholic Church. It was charming to see that the Catholic school is still active as well.

Regardless of your church affiliation, this architecturally beautiful church is worth the visit. I happen to be there on a Friday and there was an all day "Eucharistic Adoration" service in progress. There was a truly special feeling in this place of worship.
