A 12-foot-wide new Fiberglas sculpture is now over the doorway of the Archdiocese of Detroit. It wasn't originally part of the building.

The sculpture was created by artists in Ann Arbor. It depicts a trio of figures central to Catholic faith: Jesus, shown as a young boy, emerging from a Bible touched by his mother, Mary, and his grandmother Anne. Catholics refer to St. Anne as the patron saint of Detroit, a title that the Vatican affirmed in 2011.
