This majestic cathedral-sized church is a testament to the industrious and faithful Polish immigrants that built it over a century ago. Situated on Poland street, it calls to heart the patron saint of chimney sweeps, firefighters, and soapmakers. Poland adopted the Roman-borne saint in 1184. The bishop of Kracow, Karol Wojtyla, celebrated mass here before becoming Pope John Paul II.... More

We were in Hantramck during the week when the church was closed, but I got talking to a woman walking down the street who told me her parents were married in the church and she grew up there. She told me to knock on the rectory door and ask if we could see the church. We did and they let... More

An amazing structure. Real Beautiful architecture . An example of a bygone era of worship. It stands out tall above the city. Reminds me of the great cathedrals of Europe.

a beautiful church nestled in the once Polish community of Hamtramck. A must if you like wood carvings and one of the most impressive organs around. They still say mass in Polish. If your into seeing churches that are not just halls with crosses in them put St. Florian on you list of must sees.

Of course, that's only my opinion. This is an old style Catholic church that has almost enough seats to be a cathedral. It is an amazing building, and even if one is not Catholic, if you have an interest in architecture, you must see it. For me, it is what a traditional Catholic church should look like- opulent, stately and... More

The church is very clean. We went to an English mass which was sparsely populated on a Saturday @ 4pm. I would like to go to the Polish mass on Sunday and would hope to see the church packed. The windows and altar and chapels are stunningly beautiful.

My grandparents were married in this church and my siblings and aunts wanted to see what it was like. We were so blessed to be able to enter this building. The Parish has "adoration" from 3-6 pm on Fridays. After walking up several steps and entering through the massive doors be prepared to be amazed. It is absolutely beautiful and... More

Surrounded by the beautiful ceiling and sides, it is another of many such churches built in the early 1900s by Polish and Italian immigrents in the Detroit area.
