Always with gratitude, I recall the great Blessings of a fine education, the taught/influenced love of our Lord and our Faith, critical thinking, debating, athletic and social skills and the valued life of loving service, passed on by the IHM Sisters, our Holy Priests, teachers, and staff as well as from our enormous Gesu Community/Family. +You will show me the path to life, fullness of joys in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever.+ Psalm 16:11
Annie Bussinger
I have such fond memories of my grade school years at Gesu. The very first earth day made a huge impact on me, thanks to all of the teachers who went all out for that important day. I commute by bicycle and have for many years and I thank all of the cool nuns for being so passionate about the importance of this so very important stewardship!

Gesu formed us so deeply! We lived in Gesu from 1970 - 2000. Worship, outreach, community, and faith formation in a racially and economically diverse congregation made us so much more than we would have been otherwise. We are who we are today because of Gesu. We aim to become who we are to become because of the foundations and relationships that give our lives direction - toward God's love in action, in everything, everywhere.

Although I give to Charitable causes, it feels so much more rewarding to support Gesu School's efforts to educate and help prepare today's children for all of their tomorrows. Love to all of the Gesu Community both past and present!

We Faber kids lived in Grosse Pointe until moving to Gesu (for me, fifth grade, Sr. Ann Matthew). We didn't realize it till years later, but we had a magical childhood growing up in that Detroit neighborhood where every home seemed to have a minimum of 10 kids each. We were never at a loss for playmates. Walking to and from Gesu each day are some of my fondest memories. The education we received from our beloved nuns and teachers, the faith instilled by our church and the friendships that continue today...have carried us a long way in our lives. I will forever be grateful for my years in the Gesu Parish.

Gesu was and is the best catholic school in the state. There was a warmth in the environment and the faculty. I had a hard life when I was a kid and coming to school was an escape for me. This school taught me religion and I learned the love and grace of God their that carried me thru life!
