NOVENA to St. Therese of Lisieux

St. Therese, a 19th century Carmelite nun whose way to God was not through great deeds but through little things done with great love, died at the age of 24. Never having built orphanages, gone to far away lands to make converts, or challenged political and economic injustice, her influence has been her simple reliance on God and God’s power to do great things through daily actions done in love.

For those who would like to ask her intercession to grow in God’s grace through the loving actions of daily life, the novena begins September 23 through her feast day, October 1.

This is a PERSONAL PRAYER NOVENA. Prayer cards will be available near the church doors. You are welcome to come and go as you are able.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word – CHANGE

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

(Children’s Dismissal) for 2nd – 5th graders will NOT continue going forward.

This decision was made due to security concerns and the inability to keep accurate attendance records and ensure    registration. To continue to provide programming for this age group, there will be a Children’s Mass every third Sunday of the month at 11:00 mass.

The readings and Eucharistic prayers used will be from the Lectionary for Masses with Children and the Eucharistic Prayers for Masses with Children. The homily will be geared toward the children in the Assembly.

If parents are interested in materials for older children, I have books and resources to share. Contact Michele at 313-7003 or mlassiter@dioceseofspokane.org

Our Parish: Mission, Vision and Values

About us:

St. Aloysius  Parish is staffed by priests who are 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 our parishioners to experience the transformative power of God’s love through our weekly liturgies and our pastoral and social ministries.

Values:

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.
