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.

Oh the weather outside was frightening!!

 The 2017 Alumni Christmas Party was held on Wednesday Dec. 13, 2017.  It was a great success regardless of the weatherman. Over 180 attendees braved the snow and ice to join in celebration of our alma mater. We were glad we hired a valet service. Hope we saved a few slips and falls. We will appreciate feedback on their service.
We were blessed by the presence of the St. Alphonsus-St. Clements priests Father Linus Kinyua, and Father Aaron DePeyster. Hopefully their blessing kept us safe on the trek home. Chester Lawrence '52 and member of the parish council made a request for mass attendance and contributions to the parish and reported some immediate results. Hope to see you also in the pews.
We made some special recognition to Don Summers '49 for his past support of the school, the class of '42 who raised funds during WWII for the flag pole and a commemorative plaque, and a recognition of our own Karen ( Cardelli '69) Andrusiak's selection as the Rose Award Volunteer of the year for Wayne County.
Compliments to the Chef; the food was excellent!  Finished off with cake and ice cream.
We had eight winners for the raffle who were happy campers. Thanks to ticket sellers for their salesmanship.
It goes without saying that a big thanks to our Board Members and our peeps who always come out to do the heavy lifting, especially all who helped break down the exhibits.
It was a pleasure seeing the old and the new alumni join in this wonderful event even in our winter wonderland. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and join us next year.

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.
