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.

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS: The office hours during the months of June, July and August are from 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.! Thanks!


NEW SOUND PLUS AUDIO LOOP SYSTEM: We recently installed an all new state-of-the art sound system (except speakers). In addition, we added Audio Loops around all the pews. Hearing aids equipped with T-Coils turned on hear audio broadcast directly to the hearing aids when inside a loop. This improves audio quality since it takes advantage of the settings in the hearing aids and greatly enhances word recognition. 


HELPING HANDS: Anyone at St. Aloysius needing temporary assistance in the form of meals or rides to doctors, therapy, treatments, etc., should call Carol [738-1103], Millie [738-1110], or the parish office [738-1014, ext. 301]. Requests for assistance other than those mentioned above will be considered on an individual basis. We are here to help when help is needed.


COMMUNION CALLS: If you are homebound or unable to get to Mass and would like to receive the Holy Eucharist, please call the parish office [738-1014] or Joyce Kist [738- 1368]. Holy Communion can be brought to you at home. 


ATTENTION PLEASE: If you are a person who receives a LOW GLUTEN HOST, please go to Fr. Jim for Communion and place your hand over your heart as a signal to receive the low gluten host. 


INTERESTED IN CATHOLICISM? The RCIA will begin in late September. No commitment is necessary; just let us share our faith with you. Or you might want an update on your faith. Please call Deacon Bill Brunsman [315-8014] or the Parish Office [738-1014].
