 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.

Bricks from the school:

Update – August 1, 2023

We apologize for the confusion about the bricks from the school and appreciate your patience. Now that the demolition is almost completed the debris continues to be trucked away. We have asked them again to set aside a pile of bricks for us to be picked up later. So far they haven't. We will announce here if and when additional bricks are available.

Thank you,

St. Alphonsus Alumni Association

St. Alphonsus Library - August 2023

Two truckloads of books from the high school library were recently loaded to be taken to Chicago where they will be shipped to Nigeria. The books were discovered last October in boxes in a storage room in the activities building of the school, along with quite a few textbooks that were left behind by the charter school. It was estimated that there were over 200 boxes containing over 9,000 books. A new home for the books was sought before they were lost in the demolition of the school buildings. Fr. Anthony Kote-Witah, one of the Capuchin priests who had been assisting at our Sunday Masses was collecting book donations to establish a library at an orphanage he is building in his homeland in Nigeria. After arrangements were made to donate the library books, they were moved out of the school to Fr. Yagley Hall for temporary storage. Over the past few months, volunteers helped wrap the boxes in plastic for shipment. Thanks go out to members of the parish, alumni and Knights of Columbus for their help with this project.
