"The Mass"

"I don't get anything out of the Mass"

This is what many people say who have drifted away from the Church.  But Jesus told us He came so that we might have "life to the fullest" ... and that life is found in communion with Him in the Mass.  

Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr invites you to join him in exploring the wonder of the Mass through a special video series featuring Bishop Robert Barron.  Archbishop Schnurr will email you his brief insights along with a 25-minute episode from Word on Fire's The Mass.

Join Archbishop Schnurr and fellow Catholics across the archdiocese and experience the Mass in a whole new way!!

SCAM Alert

Please be aware that multiple members of the parish are once again receiving texts or emails that appear to be from a priest or a staff member. If you receive one of these texts/messages, do not respond, and DO NOT send money, gift cards, or gift card numbers. Neither the priests nor other staff members of St. Aloysius would send such a request.


Our Family of Parish Priests enjoy a home-cooked meal together each week at Queen of Peace. Meals are delivered to the parish office or outside the residence every Tuesday and Wednesday. Typically, meals should feed 4-5 adults. They enjoy all meats, starches, salads, breads and desserts. If you would be interested in being put on the rotation or have further questions, please call the Queen of Peace Parish Office 513-863-4344



In addition to financial support for medicine to address malaria, tuberculosis, and other tropical diseases, the sisters could also use 100 blankets ($8 each) and 100 pairs of bedsheets ($9/pair) in the Maternity and Pediatric sections of the clinic. Will you help?

Sanitation is a major issue in Uganda. The sisters could use 100 water basins ($2 each), and 100 ten-liter  buckets ($3 each) to provide to clients for bathing and fetching water since there is no tap water. Think of how much we take for  granted……….

Uganda has one of the highest global burdens of malaria cases with over 90% of the population at risk. Malaria remains Uganda’s leading cause of death, especially in children. Mosquito nets cost $4.00 each. St. Al’s parishioners donated 250 nets last year. Please make donation checks payable to St. Aloysius.

Mission Outreach will again ask parishioners this Lent to support the needs of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate in Gulu, Northern Uganda. The sisters serve some of the world’s neediest. The poverty rate is 91% with an average income of $711 per year. The top cause of death is neonatal disorders. Our primary focus this year will be on equipment to update their clinic to better serve pregnant mothers and address other essential needs.

 Deliveries at the Mary Queen of Peace Health Center tripled to 450 from 2019-2021. They also handled almost 6,000 outpatient visits in 2021. Mama Kits [$30 each] are distributed as most babies are born at home in unsanitary conditions. Infant mortality is 43/1,000 births and the probability of a child dying under age 5 is 49/1,000.  St. Al’s donated 40 Mama Kits last year. Please make donation checks payable to St. Aloysius. 

The committee recently met with Fr. Rick to clarify our future direction as a member of our new family of parishes. He encouraged us to continue focusing on our current path. Our primary commitments remain the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate of Gulu, Healthy Moms and Babes, and H.O.P.E. – Full Pastures. We are also initiating dialogue with other members of our parish family to examine what joint opportunities for outreach may exist. As always, we would welcome input from members of St. Al’s regarding any engagement you would suggest we consider. We also remain open to including your involvement as a member of the committee. Just contact either Jim Bischoff, Sr.(513-896-6397), Ann Adams (513-646-1052), or Imelda Castaneda-Emenaker (513-403-9621).

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.

Dear St. Joseph School Families,
It is with a whole range of emotions that I send this communication to you. I am writing to inform you of my decision to retire at the end of this 2022-2023 school year. This year, I am completing my 18th year here at St. Joseph. It has been an extremely fulfilling time for me. I have had the great, great privilege of being able to work with some amazing people. I have had the opportunity to participate in the development of, what I believe to be, one the best elementary schools in this area. Yes, I am proud of what we have here and of my role in shaping it.  While I am retiring, I do not plan to walk away from this amazing place. I fully intend to be available as a resource and volunteer in the years ahead. Please know how grateful I am for the privilege of being able to serve you and your family.  
Bill Hicks
Principal, St. Joseph Consolidated School
