We're here to help foster communication between alumni and to celebrate our special memories of St. Alphonsus Schools. 
  
St. Alphonsus is one of those rare instances where the opening of the school preceded the founding of the parish.

The first Catholic services were said in 1842 by the Redemptorist Fathers of Detroit. 

St. Alphonsus school was established in 1846. 
It was not until a decade later, in 1852,
that a parish was formally organized.

Spring 2019 newsletter

The Spring Newsletter was mailed last week and alumni should have started to receive on Friday April 5.
Unfortunately our printer/mailer once again failed to include the DUES PAID THRU DATE on the newsletter as we had requested.
We are so sorry for this error!  The emailed versions are correct,  It is just the hard copy, snail mailed versions that contain the error.
We are in the process of putting together postcards to send to everyone with their correct DUES PAID THRU DATE.
Please know we thought the problem was solved and please accept our apology for this error!


ALUMNI NEWS and EVENTS


"American Prophet"

Bishop Thomas Gumbleton

 

Dear Friends -

After a long film festival circuit and screenings around the country, we are pleased to announce that American Prophet is now available on Amazon Prime Video instant streaming for rental and purchase, and will be available on DVD/Blu-Ray June 20th.

We are pleased to continue our community partnership with Kay Lasante Clinic in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which was co-founded by Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, the House of Grace Philadelphia Catholic Worker House and St. Claire Parish community.

Kay Lasante will receive 100% of proceeds from sales and rentals after Amazon fees, so we encourage friends and supporters to spread the word about the film and to purchase American Prophet to ensure a maximum contribution to the Kay Lasante fund. Rental of the film on Prime for $2.99 HD will provide a $1.50 donation, while a purchase of the film for $9.99 HD will provide a $5 donation to the Clinic. All proceeds after fees will go directly to Kay Lasante.*

Kay Lasante "House of Health" is a Haitian-operated health clinic and community outreach project serving the Petite Place Cazeau/Caradeux area of Port au Prince, Haiti. The Clinic’s mission is to provide health care services with dignity and respect for those who are marginalized and lack access to care with the ultimate goal to provide quality health care services for Haitians by Haitians.

The producers would like to thank our many friends and supporters who have made this movie possible and hope that audiences will continue to enjoy the film, share it with their communities and continue discussions around the film’s themes of social justice, moral leadership, and nonviolence. We hope that American Prophet will inspire people to find out more about Bishop Gumbleton’s life and work, and inspire their own work on behalf of peace.

Thank you for your help to make this incredible journey from script to screen to hearts possible.

Jasmine Rivera
Director, American Prophet

ALUMNI MASS - 1st SATURDAY of the MONTH at 4 p.m.

Our own version of the "Mass mob" 
~ ALUMNI MASS - 4:00 
on the First Saturday of every month.

The 4:00 pm Mass on the first Saturday of each month at St. Al’s is designated as the “Alumni Mass.” Many alumni who have returned for the recent Mass Mob event have said the church brings back so many memories that it feels like coming home. At this time the merger of the parishes seems to be infusing our church with new life. If your class is planning on gathering at the Alumni Mass for any special event please let the parish office know in advance. We encourage all alumni to consider participating and supporting St. Alphonsus – St. Clement Parish.

See you in church…and spread the word.
