The Sweetest Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church is located at 4440 Russell Street (at East Canfield Street) in Detroit, Michigan, in the Forest Park neighborhood on the city's central East side. The Gothic Revival cathedral styled church is the largest of the Roman Catholic churches in the City of Detroit. It was designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1974 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. It, along with St. Albertus Roman Catholic Church, 0.4 miles east on East Canfield Street, and St. Josaphat Roman Catholic Church, 0.3 miles west at East Canfield Street and Chrysler Drive, served the large Polish community through most of the twentieth century. In a diocesan reorganization instituted by Archbishop Allen Vigneron in 2013, Sweetest Heart of Mary joined with St. Josephat to form Mother of Divine Mercy Parish.

  • Peaceful.
  • Beautiful church. Went for the fish fry. GREAT food wonderful friendly people. Can't wait to go back for fish and to the summer perogi festival ❤️
  • Incredibly disappointing experience with this church while planning wedding. The main source of contact was short, snippy, and found our questions to be Exasperating. It was a terrible experience from the beginning and untimely decided to change our location be we were treated so badly.
  • I like this place😊 You are allowed to be worry free, carefree and stress free all for free!
  • Amazing! Was there for a wedding. Great venue.
