Last year, when St. Josaphat Church in Detroit sustained significant damage to its steeple in a windstorm, the parish brought in a company which used a drone to capture close-up views of the damage.
I like to visit the places where Detroiters have gathered to pray, and I’ve written before about St. Josaphat here and here, and the effort to restore their steeple and reopen the church.
Anyway, Sweetest Heart of Mary is one of three historic churches–along with St. Josaphat and St. Joseph’s–which have been clustered in a single parish, Mary of Divine Mercy. The drone apparently did some filming in each of the three: capturing the green-tone copper elements on the steeple of St. Joseph’s near Eastern Market, before wafting into the great doors at Sweetest Heart of Mary.
Detroit has many historic places of worship, but Sweetest Heart of Mary is, in my view, the most beautiful of all. I’m including here a few photos, as well as the breathtaking video from HelloAerial.
