About

History

One of the problems facing the early Church of Detroit was staffing its parishes. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Roman Catholic missionary orders sent priests to minister to the growing Catholic population and undertake the conversion of the Native Americans. Later, priests were recruited from the Catholic countries of Europe. However, the need to develop a native Michigan clergy remained. A seminary would be necessary to train young men for the priesthood.
