About Us

About our church

Since its founding in 1964, Saint Aloysius Parish has grown to more than 5000 families. The Elementary School has a healthy enrollment of over 300 students and Religious Education has an enrollment more than 1800 students. Throughout the years, many parish societies and organizations have sprung up from the community, making our parish active and vibrant.

The celebration of the Eucharist is the "source and summit" of what we do as Catholic Christians.

We encourage all the faithful to participate fully in the Mass: praying the prayers and responses together, raising our voices in song, actively listening to the Word of God, walking together in procession to receive Christ in the Eucharist, and offering all that we do and all that we are to our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is our hope that anyone who enters our Church will find God's Presence truly alive both in the Sacrament and in one another, and that they will leave nurtured, fulfilled and challenged to live more perfectly the life to which Christ has called them.

About our school

Saint Aloysius School is a Catholic Elementary School located in Jackson, New Jersey, one of Ocean County’s fastest growing communities. We provide an academic education for grades Pre-K (4 year old) through eighth grade under the auspices of the Diocese of Trenton.

Through instruction in the Catholic faith and values, the students learn respect for God’s creations, regard for the dignity of the human person, and responsibility as members of the people of God, to and for the human family.
