Centennial Book

For 100 years we have formed priests according to the Heart of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd. Over the decades we have prepared priests, deacons and lay ministers, to be heralds of the New Evangelization. Today is a beginning. Our world has changed, but Christ’s mission that we “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature” remains (Mark 16:15). Our work begins anew each day.

Sacred Heart’s history is memorable, and worth reflecting on. More than a year ago we commissioned a book to chronicle our history, Bishop Gallagher’s vision to open a seminary in Detroit, from its stunning gothic architecture to the civil disturbances that formed our students, strengthened our resolve to remain in and to serve the city, and all those on the periphery.

This beautiful keepsake book is filled with historic photographs and a fast-paced narrative that takes readers through the chapel, our devotion to the Sacred Heart, our priestly formation, seminarian life, our world renown faculty, and our mission to advance the New Evangelization, among other topics. You can purchase one of these limited-edition books for $60 below.
