There will be "Dancing in the Street" at the annual block party sponsored by St. Aloysius Downtown on July 23 featuring musical guests The Original Vandellas. The Block Party is free and open to the public.
The event will start at 12:00 pm following the 10:30 am Mass. It will feature picnic food, free gifts for kids, and party music all afternoon. The Original Vandellas will entertain at 2 p.m. with their Motown hits including Heatwave, Jimmy Mack, Dancing in the Street and more. Visitors may also tour the historic church that features a unique three-level interior design.
St. Aloysius Catholic Church is located at 1234 Washington Boulevard just north of State Street. Washington Boulevard will be partially closed for this event. Free parking will be available on nearby streets and in paid lots.
For more than 19 years, the block party has been sponsored by St. Aloysius and its sister parish Our Lady of Good Counsel, Plymouth, to celebrate the church's downtown community.
The St. Aloysius parish family honors the rich values and diversity of our community. Through our worship of God, we joyfully commit ourselves to imitate Christ, the Good Shepherd. We serve our brothers and sisters when we comfort the lost, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and welcome the stranger. Our service is rooted in our experience of God’s love, which calls us to be the Good News of Jesus in the downtown Detroit community.
You’re welcome to join us this Sunday!

Laudato Si' is a remarkable piece of papal teaching. It breaks new ground not so much in content as in style. If we do not talk about it, if we do not live it, in our parishes, it nonetheless will be destined to the ash heap of history.
Catholics talk about “Think globally; act locally.” In his encyclical, Pope Francis invites us to act. If you haven’t heard about it, you can read the entire text from the Vatican website or, if you prefer, you can download a copy of it here.
So often we wonder what we can give to that special person who always says they do not need another gift. We all know them... They’re happy with what they have, and do not need anything else. For those people in our lives, St. Aloysius offers you an opportunity to make a donation on their behalf to our Neighborhood Services program. More...
We’re easy to find... Right in the heart of downtown Detroit!
