Most Holy Redeemer Church Sanctuary
Most Holy Redeemer Church is located at 1721 Junction Street in Southwest Detroit, Michigan, within the West Vernor-Junction Historic District. The church was once estimated as the largest Roman Catholic parish in North America. [1 ] [1 ] West Vernor-Junction Historic District is adjacent to [2 ] Mexicantown and contains a growing Latino community and resurgent neighborhoods.
Description [ edit ]
The parish contains a longstanding elementary school, along with the
Detroit Cristo Rey High School, which has operated since 2008 at the location of the former Holy Redeemer High School. [3 ]
As in the other Southwest Detroit neighborhoods, such as Springwells Village, West Vernor Highway is the main commercial thoroughfare. Churches, parks, recreation centers, and theatres anchor neighborhoods such as the West Vernor-Junction intersection that Holy Redeemer Church dominates.
The Hollywood movie
(1987), starring actor The Rosary Murders Donald Sutherland, prominently featured the church and the neighborhood.
