St. Aloysius Community Center had its beginning with the arrival of the Franciscan friars in 1992. Encouraged by Archbishop Vigneron, the Friars are dedicated to following Jesus by living and working among the poor through the community of St. Aloysius Parish.
So often we wonder what we can give to that special person who always says they do not need another gift. We all know them... They’re happy with what they have and do not need anything else.
St. Aloysius offers you an opportunity to make a donation to our Neighborhood Services in the name of that special someone.
Select the photograph you’d like on your card from the Donation Card Orer Form, then send the completed form along with a check made out to St. Aloysius Neighborhood Services. We will produce a personalized gift card with the photograph you choose, indicating the amount you donated in their name and in honor of the event you want to celebrate for them.
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.
St. Aloysius Neighborhood Services provides food, water, seasonal clothing, coffee, companionship, and referral services to those on the streets. They also prepare and serve breakfast five days a week to seniors in an atmosphere of friendliness and care, and deliver much needed groceries directly to the homes of low income seniors.
Each Donation Gift Card features a 5.3 x 3.7 inch photograph with Jesus’ words from the Gospel of John, 13:34, where we are reminded to love one another as Jesus loves. The inside of each card is customized with the amount and you name as Donor, plus a brief note about the works of St. Aloysius Neighborhood Services.
These Donation Gift Cards help us to serve those who need it most, while providing an opportunity for you to express your love to that special person
in honor of their special occasion or holiday.
Help us to help those in need by purchasing a Donation Gift Card today.
Help has many forms.
A brief documentary by Mandi Wright tells the story of the bicycle cart street ministry of St Aloysius Parish.
Volunteers load up old fashioned three wheeled bicycle carts with warm food and drinks, as well as seasonal clothing which they distribute to the poor and homeless on the streets of downtown Detroit.
