Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

More Super Bowl Views

Things continue to be set up for the Super Bowl. Here are a few more pictures of the neighborhood, as well as the rubble of what remains of the Donovan Building .

Most roads around the stadium are still open, but don't try to come down Woodward between Jefferson and Grand Circus...they start closing it down there to make snow for the Winterfest.

Also - there was an article in today's Detroit Free Press about the Churches and the Super Bowl. St. John's is photographed and I am quoted, although not completely accurately....my parishioners know that our 10am Service is NEVER over in just an hour!
