 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 – November 2023

Bricks, Bricks, Bricks

Apparently many Alumni have a fascination with “Bricks” from the demolition of the schools.  During the demolition we got the workers to set aside bricks from the High School building outside  of the security fence. Whatever was there was quickly claimed by alumni.

When the Gym was being knocked down, armed with gloves, hammers and a pickup, a few of us were able to reclaim a couple hundred bricks. 

 For the folks who had made requests or signed up at some of our events here is how we intend to provide the bricks.

The bricks weigh about five pounds and the procedure to pick up bricks will be as follows. Sometime next year, we will contact those individuals on the list and arrange a time and place for pickup. If there are any left after the listed folks had their opportunity we will put the word out. If you already picked up bricks please let other Alumni have a crack at the ones we rescued.

On the other hand we have hundreds of floorboards from the gym about two by eight inches. We attach a logo to them and sell them at $10 each. Personally they look more presentable than bricks but we understand.

Thank you,

St. Alphonsus Alumni Association

St. Alphonsus Library - October 2023

On October 22 the books from the St. Alphonsus library were unloaded at their final destination at the village of Ogoni in Nigeria.

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

This completes the journey that began over a year ago. The books were discovered in October 2022, packed 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.
