Upcoming Events

Adopt a Family
Sunday, December 14, 2014

The Christmas Season, and Christmas shopping, will soon be upon us.

Unfortunately, there are many of our Jackson neighbors who struggle to meet basic needs. It is very difficult for them to provide their children with Christmas presents. This is where you can help! The 2014 St. Aloysius Adopt-a-Family Program will kick off on Saturday November 22. Beginning with the 5:00 p.m. Mass on Nov 22, we will have volunteers available after the Masses to assist you with adopting a large or small family. This will give you the opportunity to provide the children in our community with Christmas gifts. Last year, your generosity spread Christmas joy to the children of over 250 families.

What a wonderful example of Christian charity! We ask you to please join us again in this rewarding project. For those unfamiliar with the program, you may contact Sister Eileen at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)732-370-0500 ext. 206 or Art Kliemisch at 732-961-7556 to obtain more information.

We thank you and pray that God will continue to bless you and your family during the Christmas season and throughout the New Year.
