Resumption of Public Masses
The dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation for people living in or visiting the Archdiocese of Detroit is extended until Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021.
We encourage those who can to come and join your parish family in celebrating Mass on Sunday. Sunday Mass and keeping the Lord's Day holy, is still an obligation for all.
We ask you continue to use common sense, stay healthy and safe, and "repay the Lord for all of His goodness!

St. Vincent DePaul Giving Tree, Food and Clothing Drive
During this global pandemic, the St. Vincent de Paul Society is seeking a safer way to help our neighbors in need during the holidays. This year, instead of putting up our usual Christmas Tree with gift requests from children in our community, the St. Alphonsus-St. Clement SVDP conference will distribute gift cards.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is kicking off its annual food drive this month. We will distribute food boxes to those in need throughout the holiday season. Click HERE for more information.
Those who wish to donate clothing to the thrift store may place securely fastened bags in the receptacle near Father Yagley Hall.

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.

Sabas was born at Mutalaska, Cappadocia, near Caesarea. He was the son of an army officer there who when assigned to Alexandria, left him in the care of an uncle. Mistreated by his uncle's wife, Sabas ran away to another uncle, though he was only eight. When the two uncles became involved in a lawsuit over his estate, he again ran away, this time to a monastery near Mutalaska. In time the uncles were reconciled and wanted him to marry, but he remained in the monastery. In 456, he went to ...Read More

Saint John Damascene has the double honor of being the last but one of the fathers of the Eastern Church, and the greatest of her poets. It is surprising, however, how little that is authentic is known of his life. The account of him by John of Jerusalem, written some two hundred years after his death, contains an admixture of legendary matter, and it is not easy to say where truth ends and fiction begins.
The ancestors of John, according to his biographer, when Damascus fell into the ...Read More

St. Francis Xavier was a Navarrese-Basque Roman Catholic missionary born in the Kingdom of Navarre on April 7, 1506. His father was a privy counselor and finance minister to King John III of Navarre. He was the youngest in his family and resided in a castle which still partially stands today and is in the possession of the Jesuit order.
As the young Francis grew, he was surrounded by war. Navarre was the target of a campaign by King Ferdinand of Aragon and Castile, and the kingdom was ...Read More

Alberta, Northwest Territories bishops: It is morally permissible to receive Covid vaccine derived from abortion (Catholic Bishops of Alberta and NWT)
12/04/20 5:12 am
“With respect to someone simply receiving the vaccine, the degree of connection with the original evil act is so remote that, when there also exists a proportionately grave reason for vaccination, such as the current, urgent need to halt the COVID-19 pandemic, then the Church assures us that it is morally permissible for Catholics to receive it for the good of personal and public health,” the bishops wrote in their letter to the faithful. “It remains imperative that Catholics make clear their moral objection to vaccine development derived from abortion, and to advocate with their governments for ethically produced vaccines.”Read More

Bishop David Zubik “stressed that the funds did not come from parishes, schools, the [diocesan] Church Alive campaign or the sale of parish assets, but rather from insurance and a fund from the sale of historic assets that has grown over time,” according to the report.Read More
