Map & Directions
Easy to find. Hard to forget.
St. Al’s is located in the heart of the downtown Detroit community at 1234 Washington Blvd.
The St. Aloysius parish family honors the rich values and diversity of our community.
Through our worship of God, we joyfully commit ourselves to imitate Christ, the Good Shepherd. We serve our brothers and sisters when we comfort the lost, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and welcome the stranger.
Our service is rooted in our experience of God’s love, which calls us to be the Good News of Jesus in the downtown Detroit community.
You’re welcome to join us this Sunday!
For those people in our lives, St. Aloysius offers you an opportunity to make a donation on their behalf to our Neighborhood Services program.
We will produce a personalized gift card with a photograph of your choice (there’s 5 to choose from), and add your name and the amount that has been donated in their honor. You can even choose to honor their special occasion... Birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding... Even as a memorial for a loved one.
Your gift of donation will be used by the Neighborhood Services staff and volunteers of St. Aloysius in downtown Detroit to present to the homeless and low income seniors in the community.
Help us to help those in need by purchasing a Donation Gift Card today. Download the Gift Card Order Form to get started!
St. Aloysius is situated in a widely diverse area of downtown Detroit. We work with all of the people in the neighborhood to address needs of companionship, food, clothing, and emergency shelter. With the closing of the Community Center, we now attempt to provide all these services on the streets.
This ad gentes style of ministry means we are now more focused on going to the people, rather than them coming to us. St. Aloysius is often called Everybody’s Church; so today we focus on taking the church to the people.
