Dom Polski shown at St. Albertus Church in Detroit

Today was a special viewing of the Dom Polski DVD about Detroit’s Polish-American roots with an emphasis on the music.  The movie was shown at the historic St. Albertus Church, just northeast of Eastern Market.

This church really is a must see.  I’m so glad that it has a small but devoted group of supporters who are trying to keep this church open as a historic museum.  I’d last visited the church in 2003 and it seems there have been many worthwhile improvements since then.  It’s definitely worthy of any donations you can make.

The Dom Polski movie was really special too.  It covered a lot of ground, but perhaps my favorite portions were the old polish wedding home movies.  Of course any movie that serves paczkis and coffee at intermission can’t be bad.

Next Saturday, September 13th at 2 PM is the 4th annual St. Albertus Fest.  It’s only $5.  They’ll have pierogi, kielbasa and beer.  It’s a big fundraiser for the church, which is extra critical right now.  A scrapper stole a portion of the copper roof from the church and it’s cost $24,000 to repair it.

More details about the festival are on  The church address is 4231 St. Aubin at Canfield.
