Comings and goings of our priests….

This summer we will transition from Fr. Paul Cochran, SJ as our pastor to Fr. Tom Lamanna, SJ as our pastor.

Fr. Peter Byrne, SJ will also be leaving us and Fr. Jerry Graham, SJ will come to be our Assistant Pastor.

The installation of Fr. Tom Lamanna, SJ will be at the 8:30 Mass on August 26th. Bishop Daly will preside.


The farewell reception for Fr. Paul and Fr. Peter will be at noon, after the 11:00 Mass on July 29th.

They will both be present at all four Masses that weekend, July 28/29 to visit and celebrate with our community.

Coffee and cookies/doughnuts will be available after each Mass.


Paul Cochran, SJ and Peter Byrne, SJ wanted to share more about their respective new assignment(s) and the sabbatical time before assuming their new work.

Paul will celebrate the weekend Masses (Aug. 4/5) at St. Aloysius and then begin a year-long sabbatical that will focus on some of the parishes in the southern part  of the Jesuits West Province. Plenty of rest and exercise is anticipated along with a possibility of auditing some academic or special interest courses. During the sabbatical he will discern with the Jesuit  Provincial a new assignment that would begin in the summer of 2019.

Peter celebrates a wedding on August 4 and then will attend Novice Vows at Santa Clara on August 11. He will be in    Ireland for a sabbatical break—living with Jesuits in Dublin and Galway. He returns home in time for Christmas in Seattle with his family and begins his new assignment in January. The  Provincial is missioning Peter to work in Native Ministry with the Coeur d’Alene People, living at DeSmet, ID. Peter’s Jesuit Uncle, Cornelius Byrne, lived with the Coeur d’ Alene People for many years and is buried in the tribal cemetery at DeSmet.

Our Parish: Mission, Vision and Values

About us:

St. Aloysius  Parish is staffed by priests whoa re members of the Society of Jesus, an order of priests and brothers founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius of Loyola. These priests are referred to as “the Jesuits.”

Vision of the Jesuit Parishes in the Jesuit West province:

To be a community of Jesuits and apostolic partners formed by the Gospel and the Spiritual Exercises to expand Jesus’ ministry of healing, reconciling and teaching in service of the diverse people in our ministries.

As a parish we invited out parishioners to experience the transformative power of God’s love through our weekly liturgies and our pastoral and social ministries.


Responding with intellectual rigor to the most challenging issues of our times.

Employing Ignatian discernment in decision-making.

Caring for the poor, the vulnerable and the earth, our common home.

Serving the Church with creativity and fidelity to the Jesuit tradition.

Bridging societal divides and fostering understanding among diverse people and cultures.

Collaborating regionally, through partnership and in networks, to serve the people of God.

Much of the above is taken from the vision, mission and values statements of the newly formed Jesuits West province which our parish is a parish of.
