In the heart of southwest Detroit sits the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer.  Like many of Detroit’s other historic churches, Church of the Most Holy Redeemer has served waves of immigrants since its founding in 1880: Irish, Germans, Polish, Arabs, Mexicans and Central Americans.  The church serves what is now primarily a Latino community, and is in or close to what is now referred to as “Mexicantown.”

The building is striking.  The features I found most interesting were the large bell tower and the mosaics above the entrances.  I asked if there was a chapel in which  to pray, but the church itself only opens for mass and special services.
