Parish History Committee  

Our parish was founded 63 years ago and has an amazing history rich with many unique features in need of preservation for posterity. We seek memories and memorabilia of our senior and lifelong members to document and record for the benefit of our newer and younger families, and future members. And history is in the making every day at Aloysius! We envision adding our history of facts, figures, and people to our website

Photos capturing the history of St. Aloysius are also needed. High resolutions .jpg file images are needed as well as printed photos. Help is occasionally needed to convert printed photos to digital images.
