“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” - Luke 6:38For many, Christmas is an occasion for gift giving, and opportunities abound for those who feel generously inclined to contribute in a significant and visible way. Saint Alphonsus Liguori Parish has been blessed by the generosity of parishioners, contributing toward specific items such as the wall surrounding the Mary Garden, the Holy Family statue, vestments and chalices, to name a few. These thoughtful gifts also serve as devotional aides which add to the beauty of the church while benefiting the parish as a whole.
Marian devotional space: Female Saint Tiles, (22) @ $2,200 each
Several custom 12x14-inch relief carvings are able to be incorporated into the Marian devotional space that is being planned for inside the church, near the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Parishioners who make a gift for a saint tile may chose a specific saint from a preferred list, and preview the rendering, prior to carving. Items will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. More >>

Crucifix: (4) @ $400 to $700 each
Following the parish facility renovations project, the new classrooms in Weitzel Hall will be in need of new crucifixes to hang inside each. Two large and two smaller crucifixes will be placed inside the larger four rooms of the building. Parishioners may give a gift to furnish a new crucifix.
Saint Anthony of Padua Statue: $5,000
To show the partnership and support of our twin parish in Haiti, St. Anthony of Padua, parishioners have the opportunity to make a gift for a 5-foot outdoor statue that will be placed outside, near Parish Hall. A gift by one family or a joining of families is certainly welcomed.
