1983 Fr. Ray Fisher served us as pastor until 1987
Fr. Ray had a special gift of preaching which was greatly appreciated.
1987 Fr. Herb Willman stayed as pastor until 1988
Fr. Herb always gave us a friendly greeting with a positive attitude which picked us up and helped us grow.

1988 Fr. Michael Schelling becomes pastor in July and stays until 1994
Father gave us an interesting quote in his “Parish Profile” submitted to the bishop in 1994:

“The people of St. Alphonsus are wonderful to work with and for. Many times, the current pastor acted as a “sacramental chaplain” for the people – knowing that the day-to-day routine of the parish was being handled effectively by others.”
1989 Catherine Raftery appointed Parish Manager
Overseeing everything from CCD classes, liturgy preparation, servers, facility use scheduling, and ministry to the sick of the parish, Catherine also keeps the parish buildings and grounds attractive to all who visit, and greets the many travelers and friends of St. Alphonsus.

1990 Deacon George and Judy Stepanic join parish

St. Alphonsus was blessed with a resident lay Deacon and his wife who moved from Sandusky and into our parish in April of 1990. It is impossible to measure the value which they have added to our parish. George’s preaching, baptisms, weddings, and many special ministries given with the added flavor of a lay clergyman is truly a blessing sent from above. We hope they are able to share their ministry with us for many years to come!
