Served by the Basilian Fathers

Welcome to our church family!

At the Parishes of St. Alphonsus and St. Clare, Jesus Christ is at the heart of everything we do. He is the reason we come together as a community to celebrate the Sacraments, listen to the Word of God, and support one another on our journey of faith. Through his cross, death, and resurrection, he gives us the gift of new life. Join us as we follow him together!
