The spires of the Sweetest Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church are seen, Thursday, July 13, 2017, in Detroit. Members of the church finance council appeared before the Detroit Historic Commission on Wednesday, seeking permission to remove the iconic church's aging spires. Members said the spires were in poor structural condition and at risk of collapsing and said it would cost about $1.3 million to repair them, which the church can't afford, the finance council president said.
