Charity and Social Justice
Charity, Social Justice, and Service
“Effective social ministry helps the parish not only do more, but be more—more of a reflection of the gospel, more of worshiping and evangelizing people, more of a faithful community. It is an essential part of parish life.”
Caring for Creation Ministery
Rooted in Scripture and Catholic Social Teaching and guided by the principles of the Earth Charter, we affirm our commitment to environmental stewardship.
Sister Community in El Salvador
For 15 years, members of our parish have visited our Sister Community in the Bajo Lempa region of El Salvador. Are you interested in being a part of the next delegation? Contact Rita Amberg Waldref.
We, the members of St. Aloysius Parish, desire to grow in relationship with the members of the Christian Base Communities in the Bajo Lempa region of El Salvador. The relationship is rooted in the gospel and the mandate to love one another. We recognize and appreciate that, with both our similarities and our differences, we are all members of the Body of Christ. We believe that this relationship will enrich our faith communities as we share our Christian walk. In the spirit of solidarity, we commit ourselves to work for the common good of each community.
