Parish Mission Statement

We, the people of St. Aloysius Parish, are called together by God through our Roman Catholic faith to be an active, visible community where the faith flourishes and grows. As such, we acknowledge God's love, Jesus Christ's redemption, the power of the Holy Spirit, and our individual and collective membership in the body of Christ. It is the privilege, responsibility, and challenge of that membership to manifest God's unconditional love for all His creation. This effort to be Christ-like will be especially evident in our parish worship, evangelization, and service.

DO YOU HAVE A HEARING AID?

DO YOU HAVE A HEARING AID? St. Al’s has 4 Audio Loops, each surrounding a set of pews. Hearing aids equipped with T-Coils turned on hear audio broadcast directly to the hearing aid when inside a loop. This improves audio quality since it takes advantage of the settings in the hearing aid and greatly enhances word recognition. Remember to turn off your cell phone and turn on the T-coil on your hearing aid when you come to Mass!!
