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.

The City of Dearborn's 38th annual Homecoming festival took place Aug. 4- 6, 2017, at Ford Field Park. In addition to three days of live music, the festival featured great food, free and affordable family activities, car cruise, high school reunions, a carnival, and spectacular fireworks displays on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Despite cloudy skies, no rain fell on the Arrows banner at the Dearborn Homecoming.  Even if it had, it wouldn't have been able to dampen the spirit of the alumni who attended. From the oldest class, 1945 to the youngest, 1993, the laughter and camaraderie could be felt by all.

ALUMNI MASS - 1st SATURDAY of the MONTH @ 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.

The annual Christmas Dinner was held at Father Yagley Hall, on Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 6:00 pm, featuring a wonderful meal by Veronica’s
Catering.  The dinner featured nativity displays of family crèches of some SARAS-WOSC members. A presentation was made after dinner, giving a little history about each crèche, such as how old it is, and where it came from.

The closing mass for the St. Clement worship site

The Alumni Association will continue to advocate the survival of the church and everyone’s prayers and efforts are appreciated to accomplish that goal. More attendance at the Alumni Mass (first Saturday of the month at 4:00 p.m.) may help. This is a good time to get together with friends to attend.
