Welcome to St. Aloysius Catholic Church Website!!


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.


Thank you for visiting our website!

Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and able to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about St. Aloysius!

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.


St. Aloysius Summer PREP Program

REMINDER: PREP STUDENTS IN GRADES 6,7,8:  Your PREP work is due in the parish office no later than Monday, August 31.!!!

 


PRAYER CHAIN GROUP

St. Aloysius Prayer Chain Group started in January, 1995. The Prayer Chain is a network of several telephone chains that pass prayer requests from person to person. Each member prays for those requests in his/her own way and time. Members on the Prayer Chain can expect to receive requests 4-5 times a week. Requests do not go out over the weekend unless there is an emergency. The Prayer Chain is comforting for people with illness, injuries from accidents, or other problems. Just a brief description along with a first name will do. If your request is personal, it can be called a “Special Intention”. If you or someone you know has a need, members of the St. Aloysius Prayer Chain would like to pray for you. Anyone willing to pray for the special needs of people in our parish is welcome to join this ministry. To submit your requests or to become a member, please call Joyce Kist [738-1368].

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!!  

HELPING HANDS!

HELPING HANDS: If you need temporary assistance in the form of meals or rides to doctors, therapy, etc., call Kitty Bosse [317-7215]. We are here to help when help is needed. 

Anyone who would like to help with this ministry should contact Kitty.  Requests for help are coming in and a few extra volunteers are needed and would be appreciated! Thanks!
