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!
