St. Andrew’s in Grand Rapids is one of Michigan’s oldest parishes. The current church was constructed in 1875. In 1901 lightning struck one of the steeples and a fire destroyed part of the church building. It was rebuilt and expanded. Some of the wooden beams above the ceiling still show the charred marks from the fire. In the 1950s, a television studio was created in the historic church, and cameras were used to broadcast Sunday mass into people’s homes.
