Don Weber retiring


Dear Parishioners,
It is with a mix of sadness and joy (moving closer to grandchildren), that I announce I will be retiring from St. Aloysius effective April 30, 2021.
I arrived with my family to St. Aloysius in the summer of 1984. The past 35+ years have been a wonderful blessing to me. My main feeling as I look back over the years is one of gratitude to the people of our parish, to the staff, and the priests I have worked with. Even though I spent a lot of time on church restoration projects, and I love our beautiful and sacred church, it is the people that gather in it that bring me the most joy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you all for the gifts and talents each of you have brought to the parish and the support you have given in countless ways.  My wife and I will be living in the Portland, OR area to be closer to the grandchildren. I have appreciated your support and prayers over the years.

You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Don Weber

Message from Pastor Tom Lamanna, S.J.

Dear Parishioners:
Don Weber is retiring.
It is with deep gratitude for him that St. Al’s parish receives the announcement of Don Weber’s decision to retire at the end of April. Don has served this parish community with great generosity and care for 37 years through his community building, leadership, and care for our beautiful church building and the people of St. Al’s. I know we are all deeply grateful for his leadership and work. The Generosity prayer attributed to St. Ignatius Loyola asks:

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.

It is easy to recognize this prayer in Don’s works here at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish and School. St. Al’s today is in a very healthy place thanks to Don. The staff has celebrated him at an in-house luncheon. Due to COVID restrictions we are considering a parish wide celebration in September. I know we need to celebrate him as a parish community.
