When churches reopened to the public for the first time this Sunday, social distancing measures were in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Still, the reopening is a special moment for catholics in Metro Detroit.

At Old St. Mary’s in Greektown, Michelle Thigpen and her 9-year-old daughter Milaina visited from West Bloomfield to attend their first in-person mass since March.

“Well since the church was open, my mom and I thought we could come to this church because it is our special church,” Milaina said. “It is a very special church.”
