On June 29, 1975 the kick-off of the Diocesan Bicentennial celebration, St. Alphonsus hosted over 1,000 persons from the Toledo diocese and the area for a liturgy centered around the theme “Liberty and Justice For All.” Bishop John A. Donovan was principal con-celebrant at the Mass that included a military procession of past servicemen of the parish forming the color guard.

Again on June 26, 1977 St. Alphonsus hosted a Diocesan Celebration for the canonization of John Nepomucene Neumann, C.SS.R., first male saint for the United States. He served five months of his lifetime of service to Christ at St. Alphonsus in the year 1841. Over 800 persons participated in the mass, which was again held outdoors. Bishop Donovan was principle celebrant. Fr. Edward Dunne, a Redemptorist, presented the homily and conducted a Tridium for three days prior to the celebration.
