Welcome to St. Aloysius Catholic Church

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS: The office hours during the months of June, July and August are from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

“Mass Moments”

This is the first in a series of articles offering instruction on the Mass.

“Mass Moments” - Gathering

The Mass begins with the assembling of the people. In the parking lot, in the gathering space, in the pew, we gather to prepare ourselves for prayer by becoming a worshiping community and join our prayer as one. When you wave at your friends, nod to strangers, or hold open the door for another worshiper, you’re already beginning Mass.

We assemble as one because we have a common mission. We are not like folks on an elevator, thrown together as individuals with separate missions, who do not speak during the ride. We form a community and join our prayer as one.

Are there folks you worship with whose names you don’t know? People you keep bumping into in the parking lot? Would you share a dinner with people whose names you don’t know? Come to Mass early. Introduce yourself to people. Introduce a friend to a friend. Practice the names. Form a community. Assemble. Gather. Then worship. And eat.

St. Vincent dePaul

St Vincent dePaul is very grateful for your generous financial support. We are looking for a family or two, who may be interested in a “summer service project.” It’s our Back-to-School Backpack program. Our parishioners provide empty backpacks. Teachers in the Ross School District provide the list of supplies. The volunteer family or families purchase supplies as they go on sale this summer. (Our conference reimburses for all purchases.) The volunteer family or families pack the backpacks and deliver to the school for The Back to School event in early August. This opportunity is open for parents or grandparents who want to teach their children or grandchildren about service to others. If you are interested or you have questions, please give us a call.

President Tom Riehle [513-498-1190] or Vice President Phyllis Gibbemeyer [513-543- 3495]

Thank You! ---Tom Riehle

SCAM Alert

ATTENTION PLEASE: Please disregard any emails from Fr. Walling that are not coming from rwalling@qphamilton.org. There are messages circulating about needing special prayers, money, etc. These are scams! Fr. Walling will NEVER email you asking you for money or gift cards.  The latest scam has somehow managed to pop into existing email conversation threads. The parish office does not need to be notified if you have received them. However, if you have fallen victim to these scams please file a report at Report a Scam | Ohio.gov | Official Website of the State of Ohio and with your local police department.  Unfortunately ministers, school principals, etc. are common targets for these scams because these are organizations that people like to make donations to.

Generous donations from parishioners, fish fry “Split the Pot" revenue, remembrance gifts for Vic Ferneding, St. Joe Outreach, and supplemental funds from our Mission Outreach budget enabled the following significant donations.  For the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu, you enabled the purchase of a $12514 ultrasound machine, 400 mosquito nets for $1600, 100 MAMA Kits for $3000, and additional funds for medical needs. We also have donated $6000 to H.O.P.E.-Full Pastures to sponsor engagement of ten abused and neglected children in the animal assisted Christian-focused therapeutic programs designed for them and their families. $14539 was collected during our Lenten program and the remainder of the funds came from the Mission Outreach budget.  15% accrual of our church net income is focused as a parish tithe to address a variety of charitable needs throughout the year.  THANK YOU!!

Community Outreach

Many families with aging adults are unaware of the several available memory care options and programs in their area that can help them support a high quality of life. So we created free resources that highlights the best memory care facilities in Ohio.

Spiritual Communion 

For those who are unable to receive Holy Communion, you can make this prayer of Spiritual Communion a source of grace in the midst of difficulty:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
