St. Lazarus Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, Detroit

St. Lazarus Church, 5 (darker)

The second half of my mother’s recent hospitalization took place at hospital I knew well from my childhood days, when we would pass the building on the way to visit our cousins in Birmingham as well as shopping at our favorite K-Mart at the time. Next door to the hospital is St. Lazarus Serbian Orthodox Cathedral (Ravanica). The congregation is at least a century old, but the current building was completed in 1967. I brought my camera on a couple of visits to get some photos. I just posted a set of six pictures on my Flickr page. The church’s website has a view of the main entrance, which I did not get.

This article has a photo of the interior, along with information on how the church is doing these days: Orthodox Church in Detroit works to keep alive its traditions (originally from the Detroit Free Press, January 2013).

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
