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!

On Thursday, September 21, Deacon Don Leach died at the age of 62, six months after receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer. Don was a faithful servant and compassionate friend. He served our neighbors at St Aloysius with passion and commitment. From Detroit to Uganda to El Salvador, he worked tirelessly to improve the lives of the least among us. His friends, including many of us, could always rely on him for love and support in hard times—support which would often consist of equal parts courageous honesty and tender care. His insight, energy, and counsel will be missed. Please keep his wife Mary and his children Michelle, Christopher, and Megan in prayer.
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. For those people in our lives, St. Aloysius offers you an opportunity to make a donation on their behalf to our Neighborhood Services program. More...
Laudato Si' is a remarkable piece of papal teaching. It breaks new ground not so much in content as in style. If we do not talk about it, if we do not live it, in our parishes, it nonetheless will be destined to the ash heap of history.
Catholics talk about “Think globally; act locally.” In his encyclical, Pope Francis invites us to act. If you haven’t heard about it, you can read the entire text from the Vatican website or, if you prefer, you can download a copy of it here.
We’re easy to find... Right in the heart of downtown Detroit!
