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.
