Virtue Project

Virtue Project

The Virtues lesson plans were created to strengthen the Catholic Identity of our Catholic Day Schools and our afterschool Religious Education Programs.

As the school year for 2016-2017 ends, we want to thank the principals and teachers who have used the lessons for Cycle 2 of the Virtues Project.  Our focus on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit has been very timely in light of the Archbishop’s reliance on the Holy Spirit to move the work of the New Evangelization in the Archdiocese of Detroit.  If there are any teachers who have created a lesson for one of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit that you would like to share with your fellow catechists, you can use the lesson plan template under Lessons.  The template is a word document and when complete you can send it via e-mail to .  The posted lessons will remain on line for a period of time, but during the summer the lessons will be removed as we begin posting the lessons for Cycle 3, the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.  May the teaching and focus on the Virtues bring our students to become Disciples of Christ! If you have any questions about the Virtues Project feel free to contact me at (313) 596-7332 or  May God bless each of you as you take a rest from the work of your ministries!!

(Note we are using a new application software which may make the display of the Virtues Program look a little different.  The layout should be intuitive but if you have any questions contact us at (313) 596-7332 or
