“I put it off for years and then one year, I said, ‘I’m
making time for Adult Emmaus’ and I have to tell you
it was one of the most spiritually charged days of my
life! And now, I know why it was so life changing
for my son, my husband and every other adult and
teen who have had the experience!”

FORTNIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Join us to pray a Novena for Religious
Liberty and the Patriotic Rosary
Friday, June 21– Saturday, June 29
Each evening at 7:30 PM in the Chapel
The U.S. bishops have called for a Fortnight for
Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action, to
address many current challenges to religious liberty,
including the August 1, 2013 deadline for religious
organizations to comply with the HHS mandate,
Supreme Court rulings that could attempt to redefine
marriage in June, and religious liberty concerns in
areas such as immigration and humanitarian services.
We MUST stand up for
our religious freedom!

WORDS FROM THE DIOCESE
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The worldwide Peter's Pence Collection, held this year the
weekend of June 29-30, has taken as its theme "Be A Pilgrim of
Charity."
There are many places around the globe where the Church
struggles to be a visible sign of charity but, thankfully, the Holy
Father is the pilgrim of charity for Catholics everywhere. In poor
dioceses where many are dependent on the Church for social
and pastoral support; in regions where Catholics are persecuted
for their faith; and in nations overloaded with refugees and
victims of war and natural disasters, the works done by the Holy
Father help the Church extend charity to those most in need.
The Peter's Pence Collection gives all of us the opportunity to
be pilgrims of charity around the world. Our gifts to this annual
collection help Pope Francis strengthen dioceses and struggling
communities of faith when they need it most. Many who struggle
to survive rely on us to assist them through their difficulties.
Please give generously to the collection, which will be held at
St. Aloysius next weekend, and know that in doing so, you become a pilgrim of charity around the globe.
Charity bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
endures all things. (1 Cor 13:7)
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor Jerald A. Doyle, J.C.D
Diocesan Administrator

Grades 1-6
All those families who registered on or before June 17th will
receive a confirmation of day and time for their children within the
next week. Registration forms received after that date will be
confirmed at the end of August. Classes are beginning to fill
rapidly. At this time Monday 2nd - 6th grade, Tuesday and
Wednesday 3rd-6th grade classes are all closed. If you wanted
one of those days please write “wait-list” next to your first choice
and we will put your child on a wait-list.
We have a great need for catechists on Thursday from 4-5 p.m.
for all grades. All baptized Catholics are called to spread the
Word. Be a faith leader, share your love of God with our parish
children; the Religious Education team will train and support you
every step of the way. The Holy Spirit guides and blesses our
efforts. Learn more by contacting Marie Pascale at 203-652-1170.
The Religious Education office is now closed for the summer.
Email and phone messages will be checked periodically. We will
re-open Tuesday August 20th. Classes begin Sunday, September
15th. Full class schedules are on the parish website.
Confirmation Preparation
Rising Level 2 (8th Grade): There are still some Level 2 students
not enrolled. Parents, please be sure to enroll your child so that
they are off to a good start for their final year of formation and will
be ready to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring.
The date of Confirmation 2014 has not yet been set. We will keep
you informed as we know more. Our mandatory Confirmation
Retreat is set for Sunday, March 30 from 11:15 am to 4:45 pm.
Classes will begin in mid September.
Rising Level 1 (7th Grade): Many students are not yet enrolled
for 2013-2014. Please be aware that there is a 3 absence
maximum policy for each year of preparation. Classes begin in
mid September, so please be sure to enroll your child promptly if
you have not already done so, as you do not want your child to
miss the early classes. We will begin class placements at the end
of August when the office re-opens.

ST. ALOYSIUS PARISH FEAST
In 1991, our parish priests along with Lea DiMuzio and Julia
Palladino put together the first parish celebration of the feast
day of our patron saint, St. Aloysius. Since then, our parish
family looks forward to coming together each year at the
PARISH FEAST for a tasty pasta dinner put on by the Knights
of Columbus and wonderful desserts and specialty coffees
made by our Catholic Daughters. Everyone enjoyed the live
music, a visit from the ice cream truck and the highlight of the
evening, the drawing for the St. Aloysius School Car Raffle!
For their service to our parish
