Some other images from Detroit.
There is a reason why the parish where I am staying is called Assumption Grotto.
The parish is dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, but behind the parish church there is a fine cemetery with a Lourdes Grotto.
I am told that during the summer there is a procession on Sundays with the Blessed Sacrament to the Grotto and Benediction. Also, some morning parish Masses are celebrated here.
After Mass I stopped in for a choir practice, lead by the pastor Fr. Perrone. They were working on the Theresianmesse.
Here is the facade of the church.
After the last Sunday Mass one of the priests took me down to see Sacred Heart Seminary.
On the way back to the parish, making our way up beautiful Gratiot Avenue, I spotted a very useful business. If I lived at Assumption Grotto, I would be tempted to have my taxes done here!
