Dominic Sheahan-Stahl is a 1998 graduate of Sacred Heart whose brother, Willi, is a member of the class of 2012. Last fall, he was invited to speak at commencement, which will take place on May 20, but the invitation was rescinded on order of the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw after school staff noticed engagement pictures on Facebook and realized that Sheahan-Stahl, who lives in New York City, where marriage equality recently became a reality, is gay. Current and former Sacred Heart students have spoken out in support of Sheehan-Stahl. Learn more at's Let Dominic Speak page.
