The Catholic Legacy of Michigan, a new and unique television program, was created by Tom Byrne to promote everything POSITIVE about our Catholic Faith. Our inaugural program was broadcast June through September, 2014, in the Metro-Detroit market and received rave reviews.
It is our goal and mission to keep the Catholic Legacy of Michigan, and positive stories about our Faith, on the air for many years. By doing so, we believe that we will eventually see in-active Catholics coming back to the Church, more non-Catholics exploring our Faith, more parishioners (young and old) becoming more involved with their local parish, more men and women considering religious vocations, more children attending Catholic schools, and more Catholics joining or supporting Catholic organizations (e.g. Knights of Columbus and St. Vincent DePaul), etc.
