St. Vincent DePaul Annual Report
The St. Alphonsus-St. Clement Conference of the St Vincent de Paul Society would like to thank the members of our parish and community for the overwhelming support given during this past year. As we close the books on a successful, though very different, 2019-2020 year, we would like to report that our Conference performed 450 service hours, traveled 279 miles and provided nearly $10,000 in funds for food, utilities, furniture and housing assistance to 944 individuals. Many of those served were recipients of the 'Care Kit' project launched in April with donations of food, hygiene items and cash from our generous patrons. In July, the conference received a $5,000 grant from the national organization to continue this effort.
We are off to an excellent start for the 2020 - 2021 reporting year. This Christmas we distributed food baskets to 36 families, and provided $25 gift cards to 103 children and senior citizens. Your outpouring of generosity in providing food, cash donations and gifts cards made this possible, and is greatly appreciated.

Families of Parishes
Led by the Spirit on Mission A Pastoral Note from Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron on Families of Parishes (November 22, 2020)
Sent on Mission is the next phase of our movement to Unleash the Gospel throughout southeast Michigan and beyond. It is the continuation of the work of the Holy Spirit to move us from maintenance to mission. It is our effort to realize the fruit of Synod 16 where the Holy Spirit spoke through the faithful in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Over the next two years, all parishes of the Archdiocese of Detroit will join other parishes in new groupings called “families of parishes.” Families of parishes are groups of parishes, generally three to six, sharing resources to advance the mission, including having multiple priests and deacons serving the family of parishes. This new model will allow the priests, deacons, and lay staff associated with each parish to better share their gifts and talents with the whole family of parishes. This is a significant change of the way our parishes are currently structured, but a necessary step in our missionary transformation. Just like the early Church and the missionary activity of the early apostles, the transition to this new structure will require docility to the Holy Spirit, a spirit of collaboration and innovation, and confidence in God who continues to lead us in our mission to unleash the Gospel in southeast Michigan.

St. Ildephonsus is highly regarded in Spain and closely associated with devotion to the Blessed Virgin which he fostered by his famous work concerning her perpetual virginity. Born around 607, Ildephonsus came from a noble family and was probably a pupil of St. Isidore of Seville. While still quite young, he entered the Benedictine monastery of Agalia near Toledo and went on to become its Abbot. In that capacity he attended the Councils of Toledo in 653 and 655. In 657 the clergy and people ...Read More

Pope Francis has written the foreword to Mariapia Bonanate’s Io sono Joy, a work about a 23-year-old Nigerian human trafficking victim. The Pope writes, “I can’t help but ask the reader a question: since there are countless young women, victims of trafficking, who end up on the streets of our cities, how much does this reprehensible reality stem from the fact that many men, here, demand these ‘services’ and show themselves willing to buy another person, annihilating her inalienable dignity?”Read More

“Roe’s elevation of abortion to the status of a protected right and its elimination of state restrictions paved the way for the violent deaths of more than 62 million innocent unborn children and for countless women who experience the heartache of loss, abandonment, and violence,” Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City (Kansas), chairman of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, said in response to a statement from President Biden and Vice President Harris on the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade (full text).Read More
