Parish Picnic Proceeds and Capital Prize Winner

The Parish Picnic financials are completed, and we are excited to share the net total with our community. The 2023 Picnic brought in a profit of almost $70,000! We are fairly certain this a record for our parish. All of this is possible only with the help of our awesome volunteers, especially the Picnic Committee. Thank you Cyndi Kolb, Amie Kemper, Stephen Sauerbeck, Pat Murta, Greg Hillner, Gina McDonald, Amanda Curtsinger and Tim McGinty for your time and dedication.

Catholic Services Appeal 2023: A Letter from Fr. John

Dear Parishioner,

Each year we are invited to participate in the Archbishop’s annual Catholic Services Appeal, which is an opportunity for each of us to support our brothers and sisters in Christ.  Your prayers and generous support of the Appeal are continuing to make a difference in the Archdiocese of Louisville and right here in our parish.

Did you know that funds raised through the Catholic Services Appeal benefit our community directly?  The Appeal supports Youth & Young Adults and Faith Formation programs, which bring faith and comfort to our families and bring us closer to Christ.  The CSA provides support to our Seminarians, as they prepare to make a lifetime of service to God and to the future of our Church.  

Whether responding to human needs, promoting vocations, providing ministry training, evangelizing, or assisting parishes, archdiocesan ministries and services reach beyond the ability of our parish or any other parish to do this work alone. It is the work that Christ has entrusted to His Church. It is work that we are called to support through our baptism. Through our gifts to the annual Catholic Services Appeal, we are partnering in the work Christ has given to the Church.   

Our parish monetary goal for the 2023 Catholic Services Appeal is $62,500.00. Our participation goal is 247 households.  You will soon receive a letter from Archbishop Shelton inviting you to make a gift to this year’s Appeal. You may also click the button below to contribute.  I will be making a personal gift, and I hope you will join me with a generous gift of your own.  It is only through our generosity that these vital programs and ministries funded by the CSA can continue their good work.

On behalf of those served through your generosity, I thank you and pray that God will continue to bless you and your loved ones.  Please remember those with needs in your prayers as well.  

In gratitude for all that you do for St. Aloysius,

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. John Stoltz

Our New Parish Mission Statement

Father John has been working with the Strategic Planning committee to create a 5 year plan for our parish. And part of their work has been creating a new mission statement for St. Aloysius. We are excited to share it with you and hope that it draws us all into action for our faith community.

We are a Catholic parish in Pewee Valley, Kentucky. Our mission is to bring souls into communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through worship in the sacraments with love and service to one another.

Received a Suspicious Email: Here is What to Do.

We have been notified that parishioners have been receiving emails that say they are from Fr, John and other members of the staff, but turn out to be spam.  We know that this is quite a nuisance for our parishioners and we are doing everything we can.  We have a few things you can do when you receive one of these forged emails.  
First, if you receive any suspicious looking emails from Fr. John or a St. Aloysius staff member, look at the sender’s email address. 

All emails associated with our parish end in 

If the email ends in anything else it is a fictitious email.  Do not click on any of the links found within the email.

Second, you should block the email sender and mark the message as spam.  These are options that are most likely in a drop down menu on your email.  After you have done that you can delete the original email. 

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we strive to find a solution to the this ongoing problem.

The Church’s Response to COVID-19 Vaccines

On December 14, Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Doctrine, and Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Pro-Life Activities, issued a statement on the new COVID-19 vaccines. In their statement, the bishops address the moral concerns raised by the fact that the three vaccines that appear to be ready for distribution in the United States all have some connection to cell lines that originated with tissue taken from abortions.

“Receiving one of the COVID-19 vaccines ought to be understood as an act of charity toward the other members of our community.  In this way, being vaccinated safely against COVID-19 should be considered an act of love of our neighbor and part of our moral responsibility for the common good.”

Flocknote: Have Your Emails Stopped?

Flocknote is our communication tool the parish uses to send emails and texts, informing the parish of upcoming activities and announcements. If you have not signed up for Flocknote yet, it is easy and just takes a few minutes.

Having problems receiving emails? Did your emails stop?

There are a few reasons you may not be receiving emails, or your emails may have stopped:

The emails may be going to your spam folder:
Please add to your address book or safe sender list to make sure that the emails are not being sent to your junk or spam folder. If the emails are appearing in your junk folder, be sure to mark them as ‘Not Spam’ or ‘Not Junk’.

Your email address may not be verified: 
If you joined Flocknote on your own and you weren’t added by an admin of your church or organization, Flocknote sent you a verification email to make sure you were the owner of the email address and that there weren’t any typos in your email address. If you never verified your email address, the system will not send the emails to you. In order to verify your email address, please login to Flocknote and click the ‘verify’ button located under your email address. Or you can email us at and we can verify it for you.

Your emails may have been bouncing back to us:
When there are multiple reports of problems delivering emails to your email address, Flocknote will mark your address as not verified and will stop sending emails to that address. When your address is not verified, Flocknote will not send emails to you. Email a Happiness Engineer at and we’ll be happy to get you verified! Adding to your address book or safe sender list should prevent your email provider from bouncing the emails back to us or marking them as spam or junk.

You may be forwarding the emails and becoming unsubscribed:
Emails sent from Flocknote always contain a link in the bottom right hand corner to ‘Unsubscribe’. This link is unique to the original recipient of the email. If you forward the email to anyone, they will have the power to unsubscribe you. Instead of forwarding the emails, we encourage you to share a link to the note instead.

Still having trouble?
If none of the above resolved your email delivery problem, please send an email to us at and we can check in on things for you. We typically respond in less than an hour (if you send your email during office hours)
