2020-2021 ST. VINCENT DE PAUL 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 the 2020-2021 fiscal year, we would like to report that our Conference performed 285 service hours, traveled 366 miles and provided nearly $14,000 in funds for food, utility, furniture and housing assistance to 1322 individuals. Many of those served were recipients of the 'Care Kit' project we launched last year, funded in part from a $5,000 grant from the national organization. Even after all of the grant money was spent, the conference continued to provide food and hygiene kits to two outreach organizations, with the help of funds received from our parishioners and benefactors. We are off to an excellent start for the 2021 - 2022 reporting year. This Christmas we distributed food baskets and a $25 Fairline Food Center certificate to 20 area families. The Father O'Kelly Knights of Columbus provided turkeys and other food items to another 10 families. In addition, we distributed 70 gift cards worth $50 each to assist with the purchase of Christmas gifts for children 16 and under. Your outpouring of generosity in providing food, cash donations and gifts cards made this possible, and is greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

See how you can help



 

From Pastor's Desk

This is to inform you that my bishop in Kenya has called me back to the diocese. “IT IS HARD TO SAY GOODBYE”, but the time has come for me to say... “Good-bye”....

Saying goodbye is not easy, but I want to take this opportunity to thank you all, for your love and friendships we have shared here at St. Alphonsus-St Clement parish.

Families of Parishes

Led by the Spirit on Mission A Pastoral Note from Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron on Families of Parishes (November 22, 2020)

Archbishop Vigneron Letter regarding Families of Parishes

Families of Parishes Website

Article on Detroit Catholic website

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.

Saint of the Day

St. Agnes: Saint of the Day for Friday, January 21, 2022

St. Agnes of Rome was born in 291 AD and raised in a Christian family. Agnes was very beautiful and belonged to a wealthy family. Her hand in marriage was highly sought after, and she had many high ranking men chasing after her. However, Agnes made a promise to God never to stain her purity. Her love for the Lord was great and she hated sin even more than death!

Whenever a man wished to marry Agnes, she would always say, "Jesus Christ is my only Spouse."

St. Fabian: Saint of the Day for Thursday, January 20, 2022

Eusebius, born just a few years after Fabian's death, tells us how Fabian came to Rome after Pope Anteros died in 236. A layperson, and not a very important one, he may have come for the same reason many still come to Rome today during a papal election: concern for the future of the faith, curiosity about the new pope, a desire to grieve for the pope who had passed. Seeing all the important people gathered to make this momentous decision must have been overwhelming. Which one would be the new ...

St. Fillan: Saint of the Day for Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Fillan, son of Feriach and St. Kentigerna, was also known as Foelan. He became a monk in his youth and accompanied his mother from Ireland to Scotland where he lived as a hermit near St. Andrew's monastery for many years, and then was elected abbot. He later resigned and resumed his eremitical life at Glendochart, Pertchire, where he built a church and was reknowned for his miracles. Various legends attribute the most extravagant miracles to him, such as the one in which his prayers caused a ...
