Catholic Services Appeal 2024 - With Eyes Fixed On Jesus
The CSA 2024 campaign has begun with a target of $37,164. When you receive the CSA material in the mail, please prayerfully consider your pledge amount. We are grateful to the many that have contributed to the CSA in the past. Please consider increasing your gift this year. Through CSA, more than one hundred services, programs and ministries are supported in our community. Any amount received above the target is returned to the Parish, is not assessed and does not increase next year’s target.

This year's Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) theme comes from the motto of Archbishop Vigneron, which he adopted from the Letter to the Hebrews: “Let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith.” It is this steadfast focus on Jesus that gives us the strength and courage to go about the work of sharing our love of Jesus Christ with others. The CSA is an opportunity for the faithful to respond to Christ’s command “to love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12) by helping to fund services throughout the broader area of southeast Michigan. This collaborative, archdiocesan campaign is a way to demonstrate the unity of the larger Church and to fund these vital programs.

St. Alphonsus-St. Clement Parish News - By Fr. Terry Kerner, Administrator/Moderator

"WHERE WE'VE BEEN"
The past two years have seen dramatic physical changes and improvements to our parish campus. Besides the razing of the schools and related buildings, numerous other projects have been addressed as well. Among oth-er things, a new roof on Yagley Hall, church electrical wiring, stained glass, church bells, leaky roof and a struggling organ were all given the attention they needed. As any homeowner knows, there is always something that needs attention at any given time. Our stately buildings are no exception to the rule. Our thanks to several parishioners who have stepped up and covered the costs of some of our needed improvements. Their gener-osity is exceptional. Also, supporters of the annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) generated a return of $29,751. The "over our target" funds were applied to church roof repair. All of this giving is significant in that it speaks of our parishioners' dedication and just where we are now!
"WHERE WE'RE AT"
We are in a good place. We’re now able to enjoy an expanded, well-lit, safe parking lot. We look forward to the City's collaboration providing new sidewalks. Now that the footprint of the new lot has been established, the design of the necessary fencing will be determined. After the cost of the parking lot, this is the most expensive item we can anticipate. We are looking for some well-heeled alumni or business to underwrite the cost! A statue of our Lady of Fatima will find a place near the southwest corner (gym site) of the campus. (Muslims have a devotion to Our Lady of Fatima and we hope to share ours with theirs.) On the former site of the high school stands the cornerstone from 1921 and the newly restored flagpole donated by the class of 1942--the first to have graduates in WW II. Devotional areas honoring priests, religious and parishioners who have served the parish over the decades will be created with memorial bricks and landscaping. A Way of the Cross will eventu-ally find a home on the site of the elementary school.
"WHERE WE'RE GOING"
We are going forward! With the Archdiocesan endorsement they have recognized the priority of Catholic mis-sion over money. As much as the commercial value of the property is, our Catholic presence is priceless. The property has been dedicated to the evangelization of the Catholic Faith for 172 years. St. Alphonsus - St. Clement church stands amid the highest Muslim concentration in North America. We have been given the op-portunity to witness our Faith in a most dramatic and inspiring way. Some of the most extraordinary statements of Faith are spoken in the stunning architecture of a few one-hundred-year-old Detroit churches. We are in the same magnificent class as them!

St. John Francis Regis: Saint of the Day for Sunday, June 16, 2024

St. John Francis Regis Confessor of the Society of Jesus June 16 True virtue, or Christian perfection, consists not in great or shining actions, but resides in the heart, and appears to great edification, though in the usual train of common and religious duties constantly performed fidelity and fervor. Such a life has its trials, and often a severer martyrdom than that which stands the test of the flames. This we find in the life of the holy servant of God, John Francis ...

St. Germaine Cousin: Saint of the Day for Saturday, June 15, 2024

When Hortense decided to marry Laurent Cousin in Pibrac, France, it was not out of love for his infant daughter. Germaine was everything Hortense despised. Weak and ill, the girl had also been born with a right hand that was deformed and paralyzed. Hortense replaced the love that Germaine has lost when her mother died with cruelty and abuse. Laurent, who had a weak character, pretended not to notice that Germaine had been given so little food that she had learned to crawl in order to get to ...
