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.

YEAR of St. Joseph

In a new Apostolic Letter entitled Patris corde ("With a Father's Heart"), Pope Francis has proclaimed a special "Year of St. Joseph," which began on December 8th and extends until the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception 2021.  The Apostolic Penitentiary has issued a decree granting special indulgences available during this jubliee year. 

Receive Plenary Indulgence During the Year of St. Joseph

Archbishop Schnurr has designated the following parishes to serve as temporary shrines during the Year of St. Joseph:  St. Joseph, North Bend; St. Joseph, Dayton; and St. Joseph, Wapakoneta.  A pious visit to one of these churches during this holy year is an occasion for receiving a plenary indulgence for those who recite an Our Father and the Creed, along with fulfillment of the other requirements for obtaining and indulgence (prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father, sacramental confession, and reception of Holy Communion).  Please visit the parishes' websites to see church visiting hours: (Wapkoneta).  

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.
