Online Mass from St. Alphonsus – St. Clement
We are thankful that so many parishioners are returning to mass. For those who are unable to attend mass in person we are continuing to livestream mass every weekend so you can remain connected with our parish family by participating in the mass online.
The 4:00 PM Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday masses can be seen on our YouTube channel. To view the current week’s masses or previously recorded masses click below for links to the livestream mass:
During this pandemic St. Alphonsus-St. Clement still needs your support. We still have a need to pay our staff, maintain the church building and, importantly, continue our outreach ministries. We ask that, to the best of your ability, you continue to make your weekly offertory donations, either by mailing them to the Parish at 7469 Calhoun, Dearborn, MI 48126, dropping them off in the office mail box, or making an Online Donation.
Thank you to the 9% who have already made a 2022 CSA pledge that brings the parish 17% toward its CSA target of $41,346 as this ensures we Fuel the Mission to witness Christ as His disciples. Fr. Kerner & Fr. Deters are asking the remaining 91% of the parishioners to join them in contributing to this year’s Catholic Services Appeal. Another 83% of pledge dollars is needed to meet the 2022 CSA target which is our parish’s share to support the CSA funded ministries, programs and services. Any gifts we receive over our target will be returned to the parish in full without assessment. We plan to use our CSA refund to repair the concrete around the church, fix the chronic church roof leaks and address interior church water damage. If, however, we do not meet this target, we will have to make up the shortfall from our general fund. Last year only 24% contributed to the CSA. Can we double the participation this year?
If you are still prayerfully considering your CSA pledge, you may mail your completed pledge card in the pre-addressed envelope that is provide you. You may also pledge your gift to our parish campaign by giving online at givecsa.org. If you need information or have questions about the Catholic Services Appeal, please call the parish office or Archdiocese Donor Services at (313) 596-7400.
Thank you again for helping to Fuel the Mission to witness Christ.

From the Administrator’s Desk
March 16, 2022
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to all the parishioners of St. AlphonsusSt. Clement. Archbishop Vigneron appointed me your temporary Administrator to fill the pastoral vacancy resulting from Fr. Linus returning home to serve his bishop in his home diocese of Meru. Fr. Linus lives a dedicated commitment to the Church and to his priestly ministry wherever the Lord has called him to serve. I am sure he remains in your prayers daily. I am no stranger to Dearborn, having arrived in town in 2006. I served as pastor of both St. Martha and St. Joseph churches which later merged in 2013 and took the new name of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the first native American to be canonized. It is a vibrant parish with plenty of Lenten services and activities and I invite you to visit. Just go to our website for more information. It is truly a privilege to serve in the administration of St. Alphonsus-St. Clement Parish. The church of St. Alphonsus is a significant presence in Dearborn and will continue to be as it approaches in a few short years the 100th anniversary of its construction. There is no reason why the church building cannot continue to be a beautiful statement of Catholicism and the heritage of Faith it has nourished for generations. With my duties as pastor of St. Kateri and Moderator of our Family of Parishes, I must rely on Fr. Greg Deters and visiting priests to help celebrate masses and sacramental ministry. The parish is also blessed to have a very loyal and competent staff to manage the daily operations and maintain our property. For them I a most grateful. I would only hope that all our parishioners feel the same appreciation and continue to support generously St. Alphonsus-St. Clement Parish. Your faith is strong and blessed with a rich history of devotion. May it continue to flourish well into the future. Let us all enjoy our Lenten practices and our common journey to Easter!
