Welcome - Fr. Alberto Bondy
To Our Collaborative!
I used to pass through Bronson on my way to Notre Dame. Never did I imagine that I would be assigned here. It is a pleasant surprise.
I was born in Detroit and reared in the suburbs until the late 1950s when Chrysler transferred my father to southern Italy and later in Turkey. For 24 years (1960-1984) I was a Holy Cross Brother from Notre Dame, IN. I taught in several states- every grade from 4-12. In Holy Cross, if one is a Brother he cannot be a priest, so I left in 1984, studied at St. John‟s Seminary in Plymouth, MI, and was ordained in 1986 for the Archdiocese of Detroit.
I served as an assistant in two parishes in Mt. Clemens, two in Detroit, and administrator at St. Paul in Grosse Pointe Farms. I was a pastor at St. Michael‟s in Livonia (9 years), St. Clement‟s in Center Line, MI (4 years), and St. Anne‟s in Warren (13 years). I left Warren in August of 2018 and served at St. Joseph Parish in St. Joseph, MI until June of 2019. Then Archbishop Vigneron recalled me to the Archdiocese to administrate St. Kieran Parish (three thousand families) in Shelby Township. That assignment terminated August first.
By the way, I am French, German, and Irish. Alberto is my religious name. Bondy is a large city next to Paris.
Rev. Alberto P. Bondy
