Fakten

  • St. Florian hosted Pope John Paul II on September 19, 1987 during his visit to the United States. He visited the church as a Cardinal two previous times in 1969 and 1976, and had a strong connection to the community because of its Polish heritage.
  • St. Florian was founded by Polish immigrants, and served the blue-collar, Polish community of Hamtramck, who pooled their money during the "Great Depression" to build this massive church.
  • The church complex encompasses an entire city block, and includes a church, school, and rectory.
  • This church won the American Architect Award in 1929.
  • The spire of the church is, by far, the tallest structure in Hamtramck.
  • The front of the brick and limestone-trimmed church features a huge, Gothic arch flanked by small twin spires on either side. The soaring spire at the back of the church is the most visible feature in the Hamtramck skyline.
  • The hipped roof of this church rises to a height of 117'-6" feet above grade.
