The Obligation to attend Mass is suspended through Labor Day. You are not obligated to attend Mass at this time due to Pandemic. Live Streaming of all Masses is continuing. Those in high risk categories and those with pre-existing conditions are asked to stay home and participate through Live Stream.
If you would like to come in person remember masks and distancing are required. Sit only in pews marked with green tape, those with red tape are off limits. Remember green equals ‘go’ and red equals ‘stop’! Bathrooms are for emergency use only, please go before you arrive. Church opens 15 minutes before Mass. Communion is distributed after Mass ends and you must depart immediately. The Church is sanitized regularly. If you are watching Live Stream you can come to Church for Communion at the end of Mass, many have chosen to watch in their car on phone, computer or tablet and then come in for Communion. No gathering in any size group anywhere on our property. You may sit with those you live with but must keep 6 feet from non-household members. Communion can be taken on the tongue or the hand, the risk is identical.
To assist you in assessing the risk the following numbers from last weekend may be of help to you. For the weekend of July 4/5:
For the months of July and August there will be no 12:30pm Mass.

Have great weekend, stay safe and remember to wear a mask to help stop Covid-19!
ADVISORY from Bishop O’Connell
Media reports have indicated significant spikes in corona virus cases in 21 states that have re-opened or relaxed restrictions. As we approach the first weekend of public, in-church Masses, I remind the Diocese of our directions, lest there be any confusion:
1. COVID-19 is still extremely contagious, especially indoors or in closed settings.
2. The dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday/Holy Day Masses remains in effect so that all Catholic faithful, in good conscience, are not required to be physically present in church; live-streamed Masses will continue.
3. Anyone who is sick or at risk should not come to church; that is not punitive but, rather, common sense and an act of charity toward your neighbors.
4. All parishes are expected to abide by occupancy and other regulations of the Diocese with care.
5. Masks must be worn (no exceptions), physical contact of any kind must be avoided, social distancing must be practiced, proper sanitation must be observed at all public, in church Masses.
6. Before attending public, in church Masses, the Catholic faithful are asked to consider any possible health and safety risks involved.
open Friday, May 1, 2020. All requests will be received by using the Mass Request Form. Forms and payment may be mailed to the parish office (St. Aloysius Church, 935 Bennetts Mills Rd., Jackson, NJ 08527) or dropped off in the black mailbox outside the parish office (behind the Our Lady of Fatima Statue).

As had been announced in February of this year, the Diocese of Trenton – along with the other Roman Catholic dioceses in New Jersey – has established an Independent Victim Compensation Program (IVCP) to compensate those who, as minors, were sexually abused by a priest or deacon of the Diocese. The IVCP will be open to claims beginning June 15.
The IVCP is independently administered by experienced victim compensation experts Kenneth R. Feinberg and Camille S. Biros. Mr. Feinberg was the plan administrator for the federal 9/11 victim compensation program, as well as the Boston Marathon bombing compensation program.
The IVCP will handle the submission, evaluation and resolution of individual claims, and will operate independently of the Diocese or any Church-affiliated institution. The administrators of the IVCP will have complete autonomy to determine the eligibility of a claim with the guidelines of the established Protocol. The amount of compensation for those who make a claim will be determined by the IVCP administrators. All victims – no matter when the abuse occurred – are eligible to participate, and all matters will be handled confidentially.
Victims of clergy sexual abuse of a minor can begin the process of utilizing the program by going to www.njdiocesesivcp.com and reviewing the Protocol for submitting a claim.
Monday to Friday: 9:00 a.m.
Saturday Evening: 5:00 p.m.
Sunday: 7:00 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m.
Confession by appointment only. Please call the parish office
