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 we begin the new school year for 2016-2017 we also begin Cycle 2 of the Virtues Project.  We will cover the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, rolling out one per month.  However due to the celebration of Christmas and a shortened month no lesson plans will be covered in the month of December.  The calendar to the right lists which gifts are covered in which months.  With a focus on the Holy Spirit this year, we have included two options for an overview under Lessons in the  resource section.  If you have 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 .  Also if you have a good idea to modify an existing lesson you may use the Lesson Plan Modification Form below.  May the teaching and focus on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit help us to bring our students to become Disciples of Christ!  May God bless each of you as you work in 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
