Click here for the link for The Detroit Catholic School Heritage Project. The mission of this site and this project is to preserve the rich history, tradition and heritage of the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Detroit, past and present. This site is not sponsored by any organization. It is motivated by a desire to remember and to celebrate all that has preceded us, before it is lost forever. It is also an attempt to remind us of the values of a Catholic education, and the bonds Catholic education has forged among the people of Southeast Michigan.

Visit the site to see what others are saying and sharing about St Agatha and other Catholic schools and parishes. Contribute where you can! It is a GREAT site, and they hope to one day have a physical "home" for all of those closed institutions, so they are never forgotten.

National Hospitality Prayer Breakfast in May 2010

I am hoping that you can take 30 minutes to listen to Phil Hickey's speech.  He graduated from our beloved St. Agatha in 1972 then went on to Michigan State.  He became the owner of Cookers, Rio Bravo, and then Dakota Steak house and many other food chains.  His talk is about growing up a Catholic and his faith and what life has taught him. Take a few minutes and listen to his wonderful speech! This presentation was made at the National Hospitality Prayer Breakfast in Chicago during last month's NRA.
