GRATITUDE TO ALTAR AND ROSARY SOCIETY: In a very special way, the Community of St. Aloysius Gonzaga joins Msgr. Popadick in thanking the Officers and members of the Altar and Rosary Society for their most generous donation of $1000.00 in memory of Muriel Johannes for the general needs of the parish. This financial gift is but a symbol of the real gifts of Faith, Love and Service which the members of the Society offer our Parish each and every day. All the members of the Altar and Rosary Society – living and deceased – will be remembered in prayer and at Mass. God bless you all for so generously giving of yourselves in the service of St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish.

FALL BRUNCH: The Officers and Members of the St. Aloysius Gonzaga Altar and Rosary Society will gather at the 11AM Mass on Sunday, October 22nd. Immediately following Mass they will go to Milo’s Restaurant, Main Street, Williamsville, for their annual Fall Brunch. All members of the Society, as well as all women of the Parish – family and friends also – are invited to the Mass and Brunch. The brunch will begin promptly at 1:00 PM. Because reservations need to be made, those who plan on participating in this fall event are asked to call Kathie or Mary at the rectory as soon as possible. The cost of the Brunch is $21.00. Car-pooling is available after Mass for a ride to the restaurant. Just let Kathie or Mary know when making the reservations. This fall Mass and Brunch is another opportunity to thank the members of the Society for all they do – in so many different ways – for the good of our Parish Family. All women are invited – and all are strongly encourage to come to the Mass and the Brunch on Sunday, October 22nd.

It is a special joy to welcome the women of our Altar and Rosary Society who gather for 11AM Mass today and then will participate in their annual Fall Brunch. This Mass and Brunch are an ideal opportunity to thank the members of the Society for all they do for our parish community. The members of our Society create a holy environment for the Celebration of Mass especially during Advent and Lent, at Christmas and Easter. The Society takes care of our altar and all the liturgical vestments worn by the priests and the linens used at Mass. But most of all, the members of our Altar and Rosary are women of prayer who help to deepen and strengthen the prayer life of St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish. To the members of our Altar and Rosary Society our deepest gratitude for all you do to make St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish a community of faith, mercy and generous service. God bless you all!

The Altar and Rosary Society of St. Aloysius Gonzaga Parish has elected new leadership to serve their Society. The Leadership Team is: Karen Beals – President, Debby Rybarczyk – Vice President, Sue Hanzlian – Corresponding Secretary. Ruth Hilmey will continue on as Treasurer, assisted by Melanie Warden. The members of the Society will be well served by their new Officers. At the same time, a word of deep, deep gratitude has to be extended to the out-going Officers who have served the Society and Parish for many years: Muriel Johannes – President, Lucy Missert – Vice-President, Geri Nogas – Secretary. These women have fulfilled their duties and responsibilities most admirably and, hopefully, will continue to be involved in the activities and services of the Society. If any women of the Parish wish to learn more about the Society and their many activities, or wish to help introduce new projects and activities, just speak to one of the Officers. God bless the new Officers, former Officers and all the members of the Altar and Rosary Society for their wonderful service to the entire community of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga.
