An album of 189 pictures from the November 8, 2012 Bishop Michael J. Gallagher Society Awards Dinner at Bloomfield Academy of the Sacred Heart is now on-line and can be found here.
The event began with a concelebrated Mass in the school chapel, followed by dinner and awards program. There were three new inductees into the Order of St. Bede, in recognition of contributions to Catholic education and the preservation of its heritage. In addition, three closed Catholic schools (Redford Our Lady of Loretto, Detroit St. Casimir and Harper Woods Notre Dame) were added to the Society's "Honor Roll".
A more detailed account of the event will appear on this site soon.
