About Most Holy Trinity Parish
For more than 180 years Most Holy Trinity Parish has been serving the people of Detroit. Our active community encourages visitors, new parish members and volunteers.
In addition to providing the basic spiritual services of the Catholic Church (Mass, weddings, baptisms, etc.), Most Holy Trinity is also dedicated to serving those in need. It is home to America’s oldest free medical clinic and a wonderful K – 8 Catholic school. It has a food pantry and clothing room, and an annual Christmas party for underprivileged children. It provides Christmas food baskets to needy families, a Thanksgiving meal for the homeless, programs for youth and young adults, and much more.
Most Holy Trinity is located at the corner of Porter and Sixth Streets in the Corktown neighborhood. Corktown is Detroit’s oldest neighborhood and is just west of the Downtown Detroit commercial district. It is largely residential with a growing number of commercial properties along Michigan Avenue and throughout the neighborhood. The district’s boundaries include I-75 to the north, the Lodge Freeway to the east, Bagley and Porter streets to the south, and Rosa Parks Boulevard (12th Street) to the west. The neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and is also designated as a City of Detroit Historic District.
