The parish is vibrant and spirited and provides a great environment to raise a family. We always felt at home at St. Aloysius, and will miss it dearly.
The Place to Worship
The music is beautiful, but the celebration of the Mass is even more amazing. Homilies are always apropos and thought provoking. This is an excellent parish for all those looking for a place to worship.
All Are Welcome
After many years as a lapsed Catholic, about a month ago I started attending the live stream Mass on Sundays, and have decided I would like to join St. Aloysius Parish.
A Divine Visit
Each year, for many years now, I have been coming to your very welcoming church. We have been coming for a [special] convention usually at this time of the year, first as a Mom and now as a Granny. And I always look forward to coming to mass at St Aloysius. This Sunday was especially memorable. I was lucky enough to get there early and be able to walk your grounds while saying my Divine Mercy Chaplet. I must say that I usually leave wishing I lived closer in the area to be able to be a part of your church family. It is exactly where I would have wanted my children and grandchildren to go to school and church. Thank you and God Bless!
To Do God's Will on Earth
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35
"...sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me." Matthew 19:21
Sacrificing financially is one of three ways we become more Christ-like. By giving to just causes, we place humbly acknowledge that all we have is from God. Trusting all that we have is from God along with ministry and prayer, that we express our devotion to Stewardship. St. Aloysius seeks to welcome all to its grounds, after all, none of it is ours. Through prayer, ministry and offering, is the only way we can do our part to ensure His Church will prosper.
