We, the people of St. Aloysius Parish, are united in one faith in Jesus Christ and His Church. We are proud to be Catholic and express this faith in the Roman Catholic tradition. As a local church, we encourage the people already here to welcome those newly arriving to become a unified and loving family of Christians. We provide for the continuing educational and formational needs of our youth and adults. In this unity of faith, we desire to evangelize, to inspire lay leadership and to nurture a sense of ownership of mission and ministries that incorporate our multi-ethnic traditions. Served by: Rev.

Stewardship Reflection “Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed. . . He told them, ‘Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.’” Mark 1:35,38 In today’s Gospel reading we see a perfect example of stewardship. Jesus gives His time to do all that God wishes - healing the sick and preaching. yet, Jesus also makes time to be alone in prayer. It is through prayer, spending time with God, that we find the strength to do what God wishes us to do. Be sure to find time every day to be with God.
