Milestone Wedding Anniversaries

In conjunction with the observance of Worldwide Marriage Day, St. Alphonsus usually honors married couples in the parish celebrating a "milestone anniversary" (25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 and above). This celebration takes place each year at a 4:00 PM Vigil Mass in the month of February. A reception follows the Mass.
In 2021, we will not be hosting a Milestone Wedding Anniversary Mass and reception due to COVID-19. Instead, Fr. Mike will bless all married couples at all Masses on February 13-14, 2021, in honor of World Marriage Day.

Remembering Our Children

On Worldwide Candlelight Day in December, we especially remember and celebrate the life, love, and light of our children who have left us much too soon. This candlelight service symbolizes that the light of these precious children will forever be held in our hearts.  
The death of a child at any age is devastating. The darkness that sets in when a child has died is all too well known to families who have lost a child. We will provide the opportunity for these families and their friends to come together on the second Sunday in December to celebrate the life, love and light of their children gone much too soon. This candlelight service will symbolize that the light of these precious children will forever be held in our hearts. If you have lost a child and did not receive a personal invitation to our Candlelight Service, please call the Church Office at 261-4650 to let us know.
