Night Fever and Mass Mob at Old St. Marys
Old St. Mary’s thanks Chris Gawel and the Archdiocese of Detroit for sponsoring “Night Fever” at our church on Saturday, March 14 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. People were spontaneously invited into our church simply from outside by many of the 150 volunteers for this event. More than 250 people came in during that time to light a candle, say a prayer, meet with priests, have confession, be present during Eucharistic Adoration and simply have conversations. It is the first time this event, which was started in Europe, has been done in our Archdiocese. For more information about this event and future ones, visit the AOD website or Detroit Night Fever Facebook.
Old St. Mary’s thanks the Detroit Mass Mob, their dedicated organizers and all 1500 people who attended the Noon Mass on March 15, 2015. This is great work they do and we encourage you to follow them on their websites and social media outlets!
It is always an honor to have His Excellency at our church.
The first Detroit Mass Mob of 2015 was at old St. Mary’s in Greektown. The main celebrant was Archbishop Alan Vigneron. St. Mary’s pastor is Fr. Wayne Epperley C.S.Sp. St. Mary’s was founded by Rev. Martin Kundig in 1834 to serve the German-speaking community, and the current church was completed in 1885.
