Where We're At - February 2024 - By Fr. Terry Kerner, Administrator/Moderator

   The past eighteen months have seen considerable improvements and expenditures for the St. Alphonsus -St. Clement campus. The most obvious was the razing of the buildings across from the church. Asbestos abatement and demolition costs for all of the buildings were $991,000. Receipts totaling $761,400 from the sale of the no longer needed parking lots on the west side of Schaefer covered 77% of the expense.
   Besides the razing of the convent, insurance covered a new roof on Fr. Yagley Hall, and water damage to the interior church and rectory walls Incurred over the years.
   A collection of other expenses totaling $76 K included church roof repairs, hydro-seeding, tree trimming, appraisal and reality fees; church organ and piano repairs and new parking lot consultation were all covered by parish funds. Generous financial support came from many Alumni and CSA contributors.
 Important repairs were made to significant items such as panels of broken stained glass, the church bells, and the decorative lighting in the sanctuary were ell made possible through generous donors.
   This coming year will see the challenge of creating a new and well-lit larger parking lot along with the fencing of the property. We look for the creation of the Way of the Cross and recognition memorials for Veterans and the Religious who served the schools and parish through the decades. Volunteers will be needed to help with these projects. We look forward to your prayerful support and hopefully your participation.

St. Alphonsus Library

Fr. Anthony Kote-Witah celebrated mass at St. Alphonsus-St. Clement for the Feast of Mary, the Mother of God on December. 31 and January 1. He enthusiastically expressed his gratitude for the support from the parish for the orphanage he is building in his home village of Ogoni in Nigeria. The orphanage will house the homeless and orphans who are victims of crisis, war, and natural disasters. Last year the parish donated approximately 9,000 books rescued from the school library before the buildings were demolished. The books arrived in Nigeria in November 2023, and recently ground was broken to start construction of the orphanage. The Ogoni Shepard Foundation is a nonprofit organization created by Fr. Anthony for the purpose of building the orphanage. Fr. Anthony is inviting us to help him in his mission with a Night of Hope on April 11, 2024, a fundraiser to benefit the orphanage Foundation. It will be held at the Regency Manor & Banquet Center in Southfield.  For more information, click HERE.  Click HERE to download the flyer for the event.
