~ St. Alphonsus Network~
~ Alumni Scholarship Fund~
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.

Update March 23, 2020
from Archbishop Vigneron
"It is with great sadness that I have to announce to you that Holy Week celebrations will not be offered publicly this year in the Archdiocese of Detroit. To ensure we cooperate with and support the governor and local health officials during this time as well as assuring you of my continued commitment to the work of unleashing the Gospel, I am issuing these directives regarding the life of our parishes, the administration of the Sacraments and the celebration of Holy Week."
This is one of those hardest times of our Catholic faith and the archbishop is encouraging us to find time to pray as we ensure the health and safety of our community.
Please visit the parish website for 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.
