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.

Pray here for the Tigers?

Hey - where did the banner go? The Tigers are finally winning and our "Pray Here for the Tigers" banner has 'disappeared'!

Don't panic. Note in the photos the cords and pulleys. When the windows were being repaired we used the lift to take down the banner and install the pulleys and cords. The banner is being attached to a frame, being fabricated by parishioner Bruce Burton's Burtek Incorporated. Then it can be lowered and replaced more easily, and banners made for things such as Christmas and Easter Services.

But don't worry - we will primarily have the Tiger banner up. It is a lot of good press, and a local attraction for fans coming to the game.
