Spiritual Formation Ministries

St. Aloysius Parish Retreat is a spiritual experience designed to take the men and women participants through a reflection on self, Jesus Christ, the Church, and various aspects of the Christian community. It is conducted in our parish by members of our parish with the hope that those who take part will be closer to God; renewed in their families and feel more connected with other members of the parish family.

A.C.T.S. Retreats are structured on the foundation of Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Parishioners come together to experience how their daily lives are fundamentally impacted by the Word and Sacraments of our faith. Through a weekend retreat (men’s and women’s) and through small faith communities, parishioners are led to live their faith more intentionally on a personal and community level.

Men’s Retreat: November 17-20, 2016 (begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon)

Women’s Retreat: March 23-26, 2017 (begins on Thursday evening & ends on Sunday afternoon)

Eucharistic Adoration can be either a short visit or an hour spent in the presence of the Holy Eucharist. It is available each week in the Clare Hall Chapel from 8 AM Friday through 8 AM Saturday. Anyone interested in a regular weekly scheduled time or available to substitute is invited to stop in during this time.

The Intercessory Prayer Network invites everyone to join them to pray for families, friends, the faith community, and the world. They welcome prayer partners to share in the time of prayer from their homes.

Cursillo is an intense weekend short course in Christianity held each year at Our Lady of Consolation Basilica and National Shrine in Carey, Ohio.. Cursillos are held in both Spanish and English. Following a Cursillo, the participants attend Ultreya. Ultreya is a follow up monthly support meeting from Cursillo.  Ultreya meetings are held at St. Aloysius on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM from April through November.
