Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 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.

Changes to the Thanksgiving Parade


We have a grand celebration at St. John's for the Thanksgiving Parade: Thanksgiving eve service and sleep-over, and Pancake breakfast in the Undercroft, and donuts and hot chocolate/coffee out the front door!

This year the parade is starting an hour earlier (9:20) AND closer to the Church (Mack Avenue, instead of down near Warren Ave.) and will go down towards Campus Martius Park instead of stopping at Grand Circus. This means we will start selling earlier, and be done earlier that years past, giving us a chance to get home earlier for Turkey!

Now is the time to start inviting your friends and family to join us for breakfast, and watching the Parade in our Garden on Thanksgiving Morning!
