St-Antoine parish, Monroe, Michigan

St. Anthony's on the River Raisin
   In 1988, the Roman Catholic parish of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Monroe, Michigan, celebrated the two-hundredth anniversary of its founding.  Officially named Saint Mary in 1845, the long-standing parish traces its ancestry to its little known predecessor “Saint-Antoine sur la Rivière-aux-Raisins” (Saint-Anthony on the River Raisin), a poor French Canadian parish and mission founded jointly by River Raisin settlers and the Catholic Archdiocese of Québec (Canada) on October 15, 1788.
