Catholic Mass Mob of Detroit at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement on August 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.

Volunteers are needed to help with the planning, preparation, setup, hosting during the event and giving the tours.  Please call the office if you are interested in helping.

Where We’re At - June 30, 2024 - by Fr. Terry Kerner, Administrator/Moderator

Residents of Allegria Village will be missing a great friend and support for their senior community as Sr. Margaret Allandt IHM has announced her retirement effective for the end of June. Sr. Margaret has been a friend and source of inspiration for so many residents of the Village over the years. One resident speaking for many offered these words: "From offering a listening ear and comforting words, Sister Margaret's contributions have immeasurable." Residents of the Village hosted a farewell celebration this past week for Sister. Besides Village residents, many parishioners of St. Alphonsus — St. Clement have been blessed with her presence in their lives. Thank you Sister Margaret for your dedication and loving service for all of us. If you would like to share your best wishes to Sister simply mail or bring your expressions to the parish office. We will be happy to pass them on to Sister.

Hopefully you have had a chance to appreciate the progress on our new parking lot. We look forward to more handicap parking spaces and enhanced lighting. A new fence will be erected in the weeks ahead along with landscaping in the fall once cooler weather sets in. The invitation is extended to all parishioners and alumni to consider participating in efforts to establish memorial gardens. You will be hearing more about the efforts in the near future. All our efforts are fitting of the extraordinary significance and importance of the Catholic presence on this site. Truly it speaks to the surrounding community of our Faith and our commitment to continually witness to it.

In August we will be hosting the Mob Mass and expect to have hundreds of visitors to the parish. In the weeks ahead you will hear the call for folks to come forward to volunteer their services as guides and hosts. Liturgical roles, such as Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors will also be sought. Pray over and think about how you can serve your parish.

Many thanks to all who have contributed to the CSA thus far. Currently we are at 34% of our goal. As you have heard from our Finance Committee Chair, Peter Salamon this weekend, we need everyone's cheerful and generous support of the effort. The old saying "Give until hurts." Is so wrong about supporting our parish. Try saying: "Give until it feels good!"

Have a safe and healthy week.

In 995, St. Henry succeeded his father as Duke of Bavaria, and in 1002, upon the death of his cousin, Otho III, he was elected emperor.
