I attended St. Sylvester's church from 1963-1971 with my family. I have returned for a visit one or two times since then. In my view, St. Sylvester is a Catholic parish that is extremely uncomfortable, and perhaps even embarrassed to be Catholic. One has the impression that it would rather be Episcopalian. For example, during the time I attended the church, the sign out front merely said "Church of St. Sylvester," without any indication of denomination. In the 1970's, they rearranged the interior of the church such that the altar was no longer the most prominent feature of the sanctuary, which is inconsistent with Catholic practice. Then they were hit by the decline of the automobile industry. I hope that they find peace with themselves, but if you are looking for traditional Catholic worship and dedication to Catholic principles, then, in my experience, you are unlikely to find it at St. Sylvester's Church.

Very nice service with a much older crowd but it appears to have some younger families starting to jion from the area. Parking is ample and the Church Festival in September is very fun!
