St. Linus Church, Dearborn Heights

St. Linus Parish was established in 1956 and the church was built the following year, in the northern part of Dearborn Heights.

A statue of the parish patron faces the street.

The sanctuary of the church was likely remodeled at some point. There are three large windows on the right side of the sanctuary, likely where an altar used to stand.

An image of the Descent of the Holy Spirit is above the tabernacle, on the left side, inspired by the window at St. Peter's Basilica. A crucifix with Blessed Virgin Mary and St. John the Apostle on the right side.


Stations of the Cross line the back wall of the church, along with large depictions of Gospel scenes

A statue of Christ with children sits in between the church and grade school; a stained-glass window in the vestibule depicts the sacraments.

Fr. Patrick Stoffer, OFM. Conv., has been pastor for the last two years. Daily Mass is at 6:00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Mass is at 8:30am on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Saturday Vigil Mass is at 4:00pm while Sunday Masses are at 9:00am and 11:00am.
