Christmas Donation

Please consider a Christmas donation to St. Aloysius.

Dear St. Aloysius Parish, 

As we move through Advent toward Christmas may God grant peace, blessing, and health to you and your loved ones.  

There are many challenges we face because of the pandemic.  At the parish we have our financial challenges as well, and thus we are asking you to consider a one-time Christmas donation to the parish in addition to your usual tithing.  Please allow me to give some explanation.  

This year we have cut our budget by 20%.  This cut is carried by a reduction in staff through attrition, and a reduction in the parish’s financial support of the grade school by 50% ($55,000).  As we look to the second half of fiscal year 2021, we would like to restore our full financial support to the grade school. And, once the pandemic abates and we are able to resume more robust parish operations, we would like to fill an open staff position. With declines in overall tithing this year, we are asking for your help.  

I know that some families are struggling financially, so please do not feel guilty regarding what you can do to help us. But for those who are in a position to help St. Al’s, we would greatly appreciate it.  In this challenging year for us all, we will be very thankful for anything you can do beyond what you already do for our parish.  

You can make donations through our website https://stalschurch.org/ or the other ways you usually tithe, check or bill pay.  

Advent grace and Christmas peace to you and your loved ones,

Fr. Tom Lamanna, S.J. 

Pastor
