Fakten

  • The cathedral's twin bell towers measure 108 feet to the roofs, and 135 feet to the spires atop them. The main spire at the center of the church rises to a height 174 feet.
  • The 22 stained glass windows of the cathedral were designed using a Medieval practice called the "pot metal process" which allows for deep, rich colors, but also allows for greater transparency letting more light into the cathedral.
  • The church was designed in the Norman Gothic style, and is faced in Ohio sandstone and Indiana limestone. Common of this style, it is built in the form of a crucifix.
  • The soaring, twin bell towers on the front facade were constructed between 1950 and 1951.
  • Pope Pius XI granted this church the title "cathedral" in 1938 making it the mother church of the Archdiocese of Detroit.
