 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.

2024 Alumni Mass and Homecoming – August 4, 2024

This year's Homecoming will be the first of its kind. In the past, we have always joined the City of Dearborn Homecoming at Ford Field. Since our school has been demolished, the grounds are in the process of becoming a memorial garden, where people of all faiths are invited to pray, meditate and reflect. This is something we all need these days and now we have a memory-filled, calm, reflective place to go. We will get together on Sunday, August 4th for 10 am Mass at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement followed by a get together under what used the be the overhang! We are planning to have a tent and hopefully food trucks and so on. At this point feel free to bring your own chairs. This event is still very much in the planning stages. Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated. Details will follow through your class captains and/or the alumni website.

2024 Golf Outing September 14, 2024

This year’s St. Alphonsus Alumni Golf Outing is currently scheduled for Saturday September 14th at 9:00 am Shotgun Start. The outing will again be at Mystic Creek but in an effort to continue to keep the outing in the green a few changes have been made:

** The cost of participating in the outing has risen to $125 a golfer

** Check-in and Lunch at the turn will now be at the shelter area

As many of you already know, there is construction of the WB on and off ramps at the Milford exit has closed many of the ramps.  According to the MDOC that construction will be completed by the beginning of September.  I will keep everyone updated as we get closer to the event.

Look for the registration form soon. This year we have 90 openings first come first serve.  Pray for good weather.  Hope to see you there.  GO ARROWS!!  Bob Bochenek '76

Special Mass for The Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel – Saturday, July 13, 2024

The Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel will be celebrated for the third year at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement by the Siciliano family. Caroline Siciliano ‘66 Keller (James Keller ‘65) would like to extend a special invitation on behalf of her entire family, to all St. Al’s Alumni, to attend Mass at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement on Saturday, July 13, 2024, at 10 a.m.

The St. Alphonsus alumni are very special to the Siciliano family since all six children of Joe and Lena Siciliano attended St. Alphonsus grade school and high school: Caroline ‘66, Peter ‘69, Mary Jo ‘70, Frank ‘72, Carmelle ‘82 and Joe ‘83.

Why this special feast day? Here is the back story…Filipo Siciliano (grandfather), while fighting in the Italian Army, was caught behind enemy lines during WWI. He made a vow to OLMC to honor her in his hometown if he made it out alive. He fulfilled that vow in Italy and continued to honor her in his new hometown, Dearborn, Michigan, when he immigrated to America. The Siciliano family has had a special devotion to her ever since. Please join us July 13th (Saturday) to celebrate this special feast day! Fr. Gregory Deters will be the presider for the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.


St. Alphonsus Library - January 2024

Fr. Anthony Kote-Witah celebrated mass at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement for the Feast of Mary, the Mother of God on December. 31 and January 1. He enthusiastically expressed his gratitude for the support from the parish for the orphanage he is building in his home village of Ogoni in Nigeria. The orphanage will house the homeless and orphans who are victims of crisis, war, and natural disasters. Last year the parish donated approximately 9,000 books rescued from the school library before the buildings were demolished. The books arrived in Nigeria in November 2023, and recently ground was broken to start construction of the orphanage. The Ogoni Shepard Foundation is a nonprofit organization created by Fr. Anthony for the purpose of building the orphanage. 


A story about the books from our library was recently featured on WDIV Ch. 4's website.  Click HERE to read the story.

Catholic Mass Mob of Detroit at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement – Aug. 11, 2024

The Mass Mob of Detroit has been holding events at various churches around Detroit since 2014. On a chosen Sunday, everyone attends Mass at a specific parish. Prior Detroit Mass Mobs have been very well attended, filling these churches and providing them support. The concept requires very little effort. You simply show up for a Mass (as announced) at a beautiful, old church. These historic churches are awe inspiring. The Detroit Mass Mob had scheduled an event at our church on August 11. Join us for Mass at 10:00 am. Following the Mass a reception will be held, and tours will be given highlighting the rich history of our church and the cemetery.
