  • The Basilica of Ste. Anne de Detroit has started the process toward sainthood for Father Gabriel Richard, a 19th century priest who wrote Detroit's official city motto. 
    The Catholic church on St. Anne Street was granted permission from Archbishop of Detroit Allen Vigneron to establish a guild that will study the life and materials of Richard. 

    The study will be used to find sufficient evidence for Vigneron to open an official cause for Richard to be named a saint. 
    "Fr. Richard was a zealous pastor whose missionary heart guided all that he did," Vigneron said. "At a time when we in the Archdiocese are coming to a renewed awareness of our missionary vocation, I am grateful that we are able to raise up Fr. Richard as a model and inspiration for our mission today."

    He is mentioned in the Notre Dame Archives.
