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.

ALUMNI NEWS and EVENTS
3rd ANNUAL ALUMNI PARTY
We had scheduled our Annual Fall Alumni Party for October 18, 2020. However because of the uncertainty of the pandemic we think it is in the best interest of the Alumni to postpone the Party until there is more certainty of the risks. We considered that many of the attendees are older (including ourselves); that we need about 200 attendees to break even on the expenses, and that social distancing would be difficult.
It is our hope that these medical concerns will be brought under control as soon as possible and as circumstances change we can reschedule our get together.
We suggest that Alumni continue to meet with their fellow classmates for breaking bread in smaller groups. We know many of us have great loyalty to the friends we went to school with. So no reason to pause those relationships. Keep in contact in person, by phone or the Internet.
Fall 2020 Newsletter
The fall edition of the newsletter is currently in production. We plan to put out a print edition this time and hope to have it in the mail by early November.
The Spring Newsletter was only sent via e-mail. The usual mass mailing is done by a mailing service which was not available due to losing our printer.
If you did not get a copy by email, you can send us you email address at email@example.com Consider supporting the alumni association, click on the "Join" tab above.
What a blessing that we can return to Mass and celebrate as a community!
Thank you ahead of time for your patience and understanding. Please know that the health and safety of our parishioners is our primary focus. Through it all, we must remember that this virus does not discriminate between gatherings; a group gathered for sacred worship is not immune by the merits of its gathering. It is only through our careful observance of these precautions that we make it possible to resume public Mass.
Please visit the parish website for the guidelines and additional information.
ALUMNI MASS - 1st SATURDAY of the MONTH at 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.
